I also run Debian (Sid) with 2 video cards but each with their own monitor and mouse and keyboard and have xserver-xorg-core 2:1.7.7-2.
I have no idea whether this matters, but I use the evdev driver for the mice:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event5" # (cat /proc/bus/input/devices)
Option "Name" "A4Tech USB Optical Mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7 4 5"
Option "Buttons" "12"
