I am quite happy with X server compiled WITHOUT_HAL=true. While I can't 
hotplug my USB mouse (I am using a Sony Vaio laptop with internal
touchpad) the good thing is that once I plug it in before X server
starts I can freely unplug and re-plug it again as necessary. 

Can you try that to figure out wheter it's really a HAL issue
as suggested by HPS?
