I hadn't tested it since then, but did just now.  Removing keyboard and 
mouse entries and AllowEmptyInput and AutoAddDevices entries in 
ServerLayout did work...  for a few seconds.

Then it went back to keyboard input or mouse clicks ignored until the 
mouse is moved.  That includes ctrl-alt-backspace.

This is with hal-0.5.11_14 and moused enabled, tested on two different 
systems.  Both have a USB and PS/2 mouse.

So I'm sticking with explicitly declaring keyboard and mouse and 
AutoAddDevices Off for now.
