Package: xserver-xorg-input-tslib
Version: 0.8.7-3

Given a touchscreen being configured in /etc/hal/fdi/policy as using the
xserver tslib input, it is not correctly added to the X server upon
connecting the touchscreen to a USB port. The kernel level driver
(usbtouchscreen) is correctly loaded, but the X input module is not
getting the device path and is defaulting to the compiled-in path of
"/dev/event0" (rather than the actual path of /dev/input/event[n] where
[n] depends upon what else is plugged in at the time).

Here is a log of the kernel messages and the X server messages upon
plugging in a touchscreen device:

This has been seen on both an x86-32 PC running Lenny and an ARMEL
Beagleboard (also running lenny), so it would seem to be (somewhat)
independent of the platform architecture.

(note: I have tried adding a copy_property from the "input.device" to
the "input.x11_options.Device" key with no change in behavior.)
