Just to add something I should have mentioned in the first message:
One reason for problems with hal is the use of AllowEmptyInput "Off".
Usually it causes the "sticky mouse pointer" problem, but not always.
So many people were using AEI that I decided to write an article about
The short version of that: don't use AEI at all. If you want to
disable hal device detection in xorg, use AutoAddDevices Off, or build
xorg-server without hal support.
If anyone has the lockup-on-x-exit problem and is using AEI Off, please
change it to AutoAddDevices Off and see if it makes a difference. It
may also be due to window manager/desktop environment, or 32- or 64-bit
OS. Mine have mostly been xfce4 on 32-bit 8-stable, which may be why I
haven't seen it.
