If you don't explicitely tell xorg not to configure input devices,
some xorg versions will do the following

1. xorg parses its conf. Notices there are no configured input
devices. Sets up some default inputs so you don't end up with an
input-less session

2. xorg talks to hal. Hal tells it it discovered some devices and
proposes input settings. Xorg attempts to use them.

3. Unfortunately xorg defaults in 1. and hal devices in 2. point to
the same hardware, so xorg now tries to speak to the same devices
twice with different drivers and options. Misery follows.
