Oh, what a bloody mess! What I wrote above works fine, till the first suspend/resume cycle. Read here for gory details.

Anyway, adding

Code: Select all

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "AutoAddDevices" "no"
works as a workaround. Be aware, that you need to have a well working xorg.conf for this to be of any value, because you effectively turn off the ability of xserver to autoconfigure devices, so you may run into some annoing issues. But it finally works.

Just for the record - Sabayon developers did nothing wrong here, so do not blame them. It's a mess caused by xorg guys. They should be red with shame, as far as my feelings go.

Which touch bad problems does this fix exactly? I'm having some issues with mine and wondering if this is the solution I've been looking for.
