It works here. Can we see your xorg.conf? When you built xorg-server,
did you enable hal support?

Yes, built with default options (including HAL). My xorg.conf
is below.

The machine is too weak to run my desktop, I use it only to test
   VIA Samuel 2 (532.64-MHz 686-class CPU)
   vendor = 'Trident Microsystems'
   device = 'Via Tech VT8361/VT8601 Graphics Controller (VT8361)'

I don't mind the hangs with dbus+hal - I don't use them,
I enabled them just to test OP's problem.

Purely and simply, it is much less responsive with dbus+hal. It
often takes seconds to see what I typed in a terminal emulator.
Maybe the box is just underpowered for dbus+hal, I can live with
that :-)

Just now I added Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off" to my xorg.conf, and it becomes draggy and slow on input.

Your alternate keyboard layouts complicate the situation with hal. I've seen that discussed here; a search might be useful.

A 500 MHz VIA should be plenty fast enough to run one of the lighter X desktops (xfce4).
