gui freeze.

using Trinity Desktop, David Hare's exegnu, on Acer Aspire One 722 
with kernel 3.2.0-0.bpo.4-686-pae.

I can run Manjaro 3.9.4-1-xxx and Debian Trinity kernel 2.6.32-6-686 
(also Hare's version) on this boxlet without a problem except I was 
fumbling with getting wifi started on the latter, thus the bright idea 
to up the kernel. (I can afford to 'play' on this machine.)

the trouble is that booting into the gui causes touchpad and mouse to 
freeze at the login screen, requiring a reboot.

I can boot via grub to the bash shell, get in as user and run 'sudo 
startx' or 'sudo kdm' and there's no problem.

I've fished around but hoped someone would have a quick insight or
