I have followed the said procedure (because I wished to do something for
removing errors opening devices (168?) with strange major, minor values.
And for me too I had a problem after Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, rebooting X.
I have found, looking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log that:
Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
        Undefined InputDevice "stylus" referenced by ServerLayout
        "Default Layo$
(EE) Problem parsing the config file

Rereading the xorg.conf file, I then realised that in:
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Default Layout"
        Screen          "Default Screen"
        InputDevice     "Generic Keyboard"
        InputDevice     "Configured Mouse"
        InputDevice     "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
        InputDevice     "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
        InputDevice     "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"

The following lines had to be removed, now that I had remove
corresponding InputDevice sections:
        InputDevice     "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
        InputDevice     "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
        InputDevice     "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
