As I understand it the standard startx script runs xinit internally.
This method of starting the X server fails.

I run them manually by doing

DISPALY=:0 /etc/X11/Xsession xmonad

so there is no problem with that.

I thought disabling automatic adding of devices would resolve the
problem but the events are still generated and the X server dies.

I see a few problems here:

1) The hal stuff works when X is started from startx (xinit) but no
hal events are generated when only the X wrapper is started

2) The wacom driver crashes the X server on unloading which is
probably a bug in that driver

3) it is not possible to prevent the hal events from being generated
