You know, my XF86Config-4 was nuked a few days ago too!  It pissed me
off!  My fonts all changed and my scroll wheel stopped working.  

The thing that really bugged me was that there was an XF86Config-4.bak,
but it was *not* a copy of the config file that was nuked, it was some
older file.  

Luckily, I had been editing it in Emacs most recently and the
XF86config-4~ file was still hanging around for me to get my old
settings out of.

I upgraded a bunch at the same time though, so  I wasn't sure which
package to file a bug against.
