 ok - you see how those are a little bit... "old"?  the evtouch driver
is version 0.8.8-4 but all the others are 1.2, 1.4 etc etc?  can i
suggest that you grab the source code and do a rebuild of the package?
 that might help.  try this:

 $ sudo bash (or "su -")
 # script
 # apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-input-evtouch
 # apt-get source xserver-xorg-input-evtouch
 # dpkg-buildpackage server-xorg-input-evtouch
 # exit
 {file saved as typescript, save it somewhere!)

 that might take a while, but if it succeeds, you'll end up with a
.deb which you can install with "dpkg -i"

 if it doesn't, then... well, use reportbug to create a bugreport,
attach the typescript file to it, and please don't send the typescript
file to debian-arm just send the link to the bugreport which will have
been created on bugs.debian.org ok?

 good luck,
