Sorry for the delay, I appear to have missed your response.
When a newer version of xorg is installed the keyboard and mouse do
not respond at all in X. The only way to escape the dead session
(virtual terminals don't work) is to SSH in to the box and stop xdm.
The mouse will not move, the caps lock lights do not work, etc. If I
downgrade they both work fine.
I'm not sure if I should have reported this with #585642 but it
seems my hardware (Dell Poweredge 2800) is significantly different.
This is not like #422430 since C-A-bksp doesn't work.
This is a clean installation and there is no custom configuration.

Why are you using a 3 year old kernel?
Its working with the squeeze kernel so as far as I'm concerned this is fixed.
