This was the first thing I tried. Now, I have tried again by putting
xorg.conf and all my working backups of xorg.conf* into a tarball and
rebooting with everything unplugged. After about two seconds of blank
screen, it drops me back to the console login.
Surely, this error is registered in the logs. All I have found is that
at the end of /var/log/kdm.log, it says:

I do not understand this message too well, but it is possible that the
PCI stuff that makes it possible to write on the screen of a Tablet PC
is causing this error.
But as far as I can tell, xserver and the intel graphics drivers are
fine (when there is a xorg.conf available). But, the mouse also does not
work regardless of whether a USB mouse is plugged in when it boots. On
the other hand, I can move the "mouse" in init 3 with the gpm emulator.
