Hi there,

another mysterious problem with the q3. This time the (stable) 
xorg-server-1.5 is affected. Xorg.log after restart of the system is 

Steps to reproduce:
1) Get ioquake3 + game data (either demo or full game)
2) Launch game
3) Use ACPI button to shutdown system

After ioquake3 is started all keyb and mouse input stop. You can't move 
the cursor, you can't click. Switching to another application isn't 
possible, even switching to the VTs isn't possible.
All input is simply dead.

I haven't tried magic sysrq and instead used my ACPI button to shutdown 
the system (which works).

I consider this a serious bug with the X input.
