It does work for me by default. How did you install X? Did you only
install xserver-xorg-input-evdev?

(General answer, report a bug: reportbug xorg)

Wild guess, your intel card is pretty badly supported, so vesa was
picked instead. You may want to try fbdev. We (upstream and XSF)
weren't able to do anything better.
