[pkg-fso-maint] no sensing of the touchscreen

with the fresh (partitioning upwards) installation of this early afternoon (CET)
everything boots up fine, but the touchscreen is not "read" by applications in userland.
The PIN could not be entered in zhone, for instance. Amazingly, when the machine darkens
the screen, I could bring it back to life by touching it. So, the communication is not
completely lost. Killing zhone (logged in via USB) did not help.

I then started mokomaze from the shell, and after some rounds of playing and continuous
"de-black-ing" with fingertips, this eventually did not work any more. Only the power
switch made it come up again. After another 3-4 minutes, the graphics completely stalled.
But I could reconnect it to the computer and "shutdown -h now".  The symptom is
reproducible with USB connected (not logged in) or unconnected.

Has anybody else observed that behavious? wicd is not installed.

Thanks and regards,
