Xorg 7.7 suddenly lost the keyboard

Hello everybody,

I recently had a very peculiar experience with Xorg 7.7 on an amd64 
system running FreeBSD 10-stable.
Suddenly any and all X11 applications lost the keyboard. When using 
vanilla vt only the same keyboard
works just fine.
I guess this happened after I had updated the ports tree using svn and 
run "portupgrade --batch -y -a".
Does anyone have any idea what might be the root cause and how to get 
around this.
Previously I have been using HAL configured devices with Xorg. Now even 
explicitly forcing the automatic
device detection off did not bring the keyboard back. Rebuilding 
xorg-server to use devd instead of HAL
did not help either. So, I am confused. Any ideas what to try?
