Based on the xorg log this looks like some kind cursor/mouse/input
related bug. Its probably a good idea to try either the xorg
mailinglist or simply file a bug. You should do something like:
If you ask on the mailinglist i would put this ("BUG: triggered 'if
(!dev->valuator || dev->valuator->numAxes < 2)' BUG: getevents.c:845
in scale_to_desktop()") in the title, this hopefully triggers whoevers
knows what the problem could be to look at it.
Far away from the primal instinct, the song seems to fade away, the
river get wider between your thoughts and the things we do and say.
