dbus is still available, and should help here (still enabled).

I'm /not/ on a GENERIC kernel, but here are some relevant pieces from
my setup that might help;

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     " Configured"
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option	"AllowEmptyInput"	"false"
	Option	"AutoAddDevices"	"true"
	Option	"AutoEnableDevices" "true"

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse0"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "auto"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7 8"

I run Gnome && KDE(4.x) w/o any issues using this setup (no hald(8).

I don't have your dmesg(8) output in front of me, at the momment. So I can't
comment on what I felt might be "suspect".

I might also note, that for awhile there, there were issues on laptops
w/FreeBSD. I can't remember exactly, but I think it was related to (ACPI?).
Essentially, it's related to the suspend/resume support in the FreeBSD kernel.
Perhaps some additional "tweaks" might be found in the laptop section(s)
in the FreeBSD docs, or list(s).



OH, one other thing that comes to mind;
Did you let Xorg(1) create your xorg.conf(8) file? and if so (you /should/ have),
what was the output? Again, if so, is that the conf file you're using now?
