[PD] HID problem in Xubuntu.

Chances are that the trackpad is an USB device, but just internal.   
But I don't think that's the issue.  I think in recent versions of  
Ubuntu, the X server or related process grabs the keyboard and mice  
using exclusive access.  You have to tell the X server to not use the  
mice that you want to use with [hid].  Check the archives, there is  
quite a bit of discussion about it.  It would be great to have a wiki  
page about this...
