I'm actually pretty sure you are. The only change in acpid 2.0.6-1 was in a
script under /usr/share/doc/exapmles/. I honestly doubt this can cause the
problems you're seeing.

That is if it worked with the prior acpid version.

X opens several devices to get all the events it needs and thus a different one
might be at fault. Do you see anything in your X log?

Yes, somehow prove that acpid is at fault.
