Does this occur if shutting down from gdm or X in runlevel 5?

Please capture and attach as seperate uncompressed attachments the xserver output:


startx 2>&1 >/tmp/Xorg.log 

and also after you exit X and before you shutdown

cat /proc/bus/input/devices

Any information on what Windows sees as devices when started would be useful too.
