Comment(by zecke):

 Okay. Could you please do that again. :)

 0.) attach keyboard
 1.) Get evtest installed and open it on your attached keyboard
 2.) Start xev from another terminal and wait for it to settle (no more
 3.) press some keys (e.g. "a", "b", "c") and record (no stylus operation
 or such)
   3.1) record what evtest is showing you
   3.2) record what xev outputs
 4.) attach both to the bug report.
 5.) Close xev and discard that..

 Goal of these tests:
    1.) Figure out if the keyboard is generating something useful
    2.) Check if X is seeing anything that looks like a key press

 Also the output of ls -la /proc/`pidof Xglamo`/fd/ might be interesting.
