xorg 1.6.1 surprises

After upgrading to xorg 1.6.1, I noticed that my hungarian layout of keyboard switched off at the KDM login.
I checked the xorg.conf, but the
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "hu"
was still there.
I checked the /var/log/Xorg.0.log also and noticed some warnings and errors, mainly the "AllowEmptyInput" warning that it is enabled and will ignore my keyboard definition. Wow!...

After that I skip around the thread a little. I've purposely only duplicated my own posts here, though some of the others were interesting. To read the original thread go to this link:

So ASUS decided to part way with Linux, the operating system that made the brand famous, to join forces with Microsoft. And they decided to make it in a very public way by stating a nice 'better with Windows campaign'. Well, sorry to disappoint you ASUS, but this is turning into a Public relation disaster!

As the articles here and here as well as the discussion on the LinuxQuestions forum point out, leaving Linux is not only a bad move from a technical point of view but the way it...
