please install evtest and test the /dev/input/event... device to check 
whether the data is reported correctly. This way we can figure out 
whether it is a kernel/bluez or Xorg problem.

without your Xorg log it'll be really hard to debug. Please open a bug 
report and attach the spew from evdev and your log file.
if you can (and you have a second machine), a backtrace when it crashes 
will be appreciated.
