Bug#447098: xserver-xorg: keyboard and mouse failed on lenny to sid upgrade
i think i did an "apt-get install xserver-xorg -t unstable", then i
changed my apt preferences to give sid the highest priority, then i
did "apt-get dist-upgrade".

this is probably what happened. i probably should have paid closer
attention. this is something to be keep in mind for the xorg
transition to testing. if people are careless like i was they'll run
into the same problem.
btw, why does xserver-xorg both depends and recommends on
xserver-xorg-video-all and xserver-xorg-input-all? shouldn't it be
one or the other?
