Yeah, I've seen this before.
IIRC this is caused by the devices not resetting properly on a server
restart. The hal code then initialises them each time again, until the
ids run out.
I haven't had time to look at it yet, but I'd put my bets on either
evdev not disabling and deleting the device when it fails to initialise
or the server just ignoring the return code. My bet is on the first.
