Sounds like , that you still set old options, like XkbModel

if you used evdev shouldn't set it   
Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"

try use just:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "evdev"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/event1"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "pt"

Btw : I think, I saw in mandriva cooker one patch that stops evdev
overwrite others input modules , made by Paulo Cesar Pereira de Andrade
but I don't find it any more.
Hi, Paulo, I am dreaming or mandriva cooker (or current or devel) repo
have a patch that make xkb and mouse works with old modules. If have it
can you point me here ? Thanks,
