After the recent update to udev, my keyboard and mouse are not working under X.
If I login to the console and run /etc/init.d/udev restart before starting X everything works fine.
Any ideas what's causing this?

Nope, has nothing to do with rebuilding the drivers :)

On one my computer I found that udev-171 created /dev/mice instead of /dev/input/mice link,
so I had to change that in xorg.conf

Well, I don't set these paths in xorg.conf either:
Code:
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier      "Keyboard"
        Driver          "evdev"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"

        Option "xkb_layout"     "de"
        Option "xkb_variant"    "neo"
#       Option "xkb_variant"    "deadgraveacute"
        Option "xkb_options"    "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier      "Mouse"
        Driver          "evdev"
        MatchIsPointer  "on"
EndSection


Also it wouldn't explain why restarting udev fixes the problem.
