ok, I'll be honest - no idea. Since you don't have AutoAddDevices enabled in
the config and none of the usual warning messages are in the log it looks
like you had neither hal nor libudev present at configure time. That changes
how the server deals with input devices at startup but tbh it's been years
since I had to care about this.
It's probably a server bug (disabling AutoAddDevices on a 'normal' server
with your config works just fine) but you'll have to dig down what exactly
triggers it. It's a niche use-case, so you'll have to debug it yourself.
Happy to merge a patch though once you identify the bug.
