Hello everyone,

I have a strange problem, I've build a dual multiseat configuration to a gentoo installation which is as follows:
seat0 is composed of a ati3650, lg 19' screen, logitech usb mouse and ibm keyboard.
seat1 is composed of a ati5450, lg lcd 37' tv (usng 10m hdmi cable), ms wireless 1000 keyboard and wireless 800 mouse combo.

when booting the config, seat0 is working ok but the input in seat1 doesn't work, there is a distance between the seat and the computer (5-7 meters) but when I sit just beside the computer and tries the input it still doesn't work.
I've tried other usb sockets, I was able to find one which results in a extremly delayed keyboard and jerky mouse but this happens only of I start to move the mouse the minute I see the cursor, if I don't then it won't work at all.

if I drop to console, both keyboards work and if I boot in single seat, both mouses works.

here are some configs:
.config: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473571/ 
/etc/X11/xorg.conf: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473574/ 
/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473575/ 
/var/log/Xorg.0.log: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473576/ 
/var/log/Xorg.1.log: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473577/ 
emerge --info x11-base/xorg-server: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/473578/
I have at home (at work now) another log in which I see this for the seat1:
[    18.783] (II) Using input driver 'evdev' for 'Mouse1' 
[    18.783] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/evdev_drv.so

[    18.811] (II) UnloadModule: "evdev" 
[    18.811] (II) Unloading evdev 

when I'll get home, I'll provide it too

Thanks for the help guys.
