that's supposed plain "Device" for some time now, not TsDevice anymore

nope. with a recent xorg, autodetection overruns all configuration unless
specifically told not to.
(which besides other things means, that a lot of hal stuff is usually
running in the background, eating resources and not doing anything useful.)
thus, whatever you configured was ignored and apparently a greedy synaptic
and a naive detction routine together made your input disappear.
i removed hal from all runlevels and put
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
into ServerFlags, so the manual configuration (still hoping, one day xorg
will not _depend_ on hal anymore) takes over again.
Option "AIGLX" "off"
Option "Xinerama" "Off"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off" #kill hal
