Bingo. THere was no event0 and event1, although the evdev module was

I had to unload evdev and reload it again to get the event devices.

Seems to be either a bug in evdev or in udev.

Sorry for the noise. Whom should I ask now?

and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a
thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually
turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
