a lot of searching later ...

seems like debian bug #516463, at least it helped:

$ file /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/python-support.pth
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/python-support.pth: broken symbolic link  
to `../../pymodules/python2.5/.path'

fixing that broken link seems to do the trick.

not sure, if related, but zhone was able again to connect, authenticate  
and do all things funny.

related to evdev, it seems.
reenabling libgtkstylus and fixing an fdi file for the touchpad according

made everything work again.
