Don't know if this is your problem but I had much the same problem
this AM after the dist-apgrade I did yesterday.  Small fonts, mouse
operation was unusable. I checked /etc/X11 for XF86Config-4 files and
found that my old (working) one had been replaced.  I copied the saved
one, /etc/X11/XF86Config-4-backup, to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, modified
it to the new settings in the downloaded version and X returned to normal.

:-) HTH, YMMV, HAND :-)

Alpha. Software undergoes alpha testing as a first step in getting
user feedback. Alpha is Latin for "doesn't work."
