Thank you so much for your help. At least my system is running now, even if 
it is without evdev. And that is the most important part for me.

I'm afraid running a GDB on the xserver is somewhat above my expertise. But 
maybe I go and file a bug on the bug tracker, so that a developer can have a 
look at it.

Best regards
