I've noticed of late when i have had the misfortune of rebooting this
machine due to severre storms and blackouts, when it boots everything
loads fine, xdm initates an i get the standard logon screen, however,
you cant do anything an the mouse dosent work.  To solve this issue i go
to console via CTRL + ALT + F1 kill tthe XDM pid an once it comes back
up, everything is perfectly fine.

Anyone else had this odd occurance ?

Sounds like hald is starting after ttys is initiated. There's another
thread here mentioning that- never read the answer though. Maybe start
hald at the beginning of your rc.conf? Or set a sleep on your tty entry
for x?

rc.conf just sets variables; it's not order-sensitive.

If xorg-server-1.5.3_5,1 along with all the previous patches doesn't fix the problem, then delaying xdm startup might be the way to go.
