good catch...indeed that does work!

I think I ended up doing some more than you suggested, I added...

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option          "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
        Option          "AutoAddDevices" "false"
        Option          "DontZap" "false"       

to my xorg.conf which research tells me turns off hal's automatically
adding devices which had me specifically defining both my keyboard and
mouse setups in xorg.conf (perhaps not necessary but I am gathering that
it was necessary).

The 'Option "DontZap" "false"' was added in anticipation of Fedora 11's
xorg.conf which will enable that feature automatically and will prevent
you from being able to kill X from the keyboard, I gather to solve some
incompatibility with emacs and perhaps some other software.
