> Q1: how do you start X?

(no config file)

result: display works (1400x1050), but no keyboard or mouse

"Xorg -configure"
(creates /root/
"Xorg -config /root/"

result: 1280x1024 which monitor doesn't like

I also tried "Xorg -keyboard Keyboard0 -pointer Mouse0"
with and without "-config /root/", same results.
I tried editing the config file, adding a 1400x1050 modeline,
same results.

> Q2: Have you tried to start X without a config file?

Yes, see above

> Q3: Do you have consolekit installed?

yes, consolekit-0.4.3 from .../amd64/packages-8.2-release/...
