Here is the log with 1.99.4

and another with 1.99.2

The first two attachments on the bug are bogus and are a different issue 
(user confusion).

The issue does not seem to be anything to do with evdev itself but 
rather how it handles itself on failure.

It appears the device is totally bogus in both cases but the newer 
version causes some sort of fatal error (nothing in the log) whereas the 
older version just carries on happily.

That's how it's looking so far at least...
