X Server says "No Core Pointer"
When I invoked 'startx' for the first time after installation, it worked perfectly but when i run the X Server for the third time without arguments (just type
'startx') from an ordinary shell prompt it returns "No Core Pointer" (my mouse was and is correctly connected, i have it for sure), rather than the expected (as the first time without errors). I didn't change any settings between these three X sessions (and reboots). And to be sure that isn't my mistake i've installed the system three times and it goes the same way.
I am using Debian GNU/Linux 3.1, kernel 2.6.7-1 (default) and haven't made any package upgrades.
