It is remarkable, esp. as I did not see the other post at all, but
learned that something called "evdev" was involved by running

startx -- -verbose 6 > /tmp/startx.log 2>&1

and inspecting the output of startx.log.

I'll give it a try tonight, but I don't particularly like
the solution, as this appears to be a bug.  In fact, 

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2008-December/msg01410.html

seems to indicate that it is a bug, though I don't pretend to follow
what's going on there.  Looks like I'll have to spend time to
understand this evdev stuff a bit better.
