Xorg 1.13 on gentoo blocks joysticks

My xorg-server (1.13, but also tested with 1.12.4) on Gentoo somehow
keeps my joysticks busy.
It's supposed to ignore 'joystick' class inputs, and says that it does
(see ), but when trying to access e.g. /dev/input/js0, I get an
Killing X or switching to a virtual terminal frees it. I'm getting the
same results with Linux 3.6.6 and 3.7.1, with 3.4.4 I can access the
device but do not receive any events while I'm in X.
I've tried running lsof +D /dev/input, but X does not actually get
listed as using the joystick devices, nor do any other processes.
Running a blank X with just xterm in it and trying to access the
devices gets the same result.
xf86-input-joystick is not installed.
If anybody could give me some pointers on how to further shoot this
trouble, I'd be very grateful. Please send a CC to this address, as I
