Potential issue with xorg-x11-drv-evdev ( 2.0.4-1 on fedora 9)

My yesterday's update of Fedora 9 installed these updates
xorg-x11-drv-evdev version 2.0.4-1
xorg-x11-server-Xorg 1.5.0-1
xorg-x11-server-common 1.5.0-1

Suddenly right after that on next reboot my Logitech keyboard and
mouse stopped working. The keyboard and a mouse are both wireless and
connect through the same receiver to a USB port. After rebooting again
the keyboard started working, but mouse is just dead.

Checked batteries and checked same mouse/keyboard on windoes on the
same PC- all working just fine.
Wired PS/2 mouse and wired USB trackball device both work fine (on fedora).

I suspect there is something in xorg-x11-drv-evdev or another package
that rendered my mouse inoperable.

Is this a known issue? What else can I check?

Unfortunately fedora does not allow to downgrade the package so I
cannot test with previous version(s) of these packages.

Any idea?
