Well, libinput won't have anything to do here, and the issue applies on
Gnome and gdm with both Xorg and Wayland. Given that you don't have the
issue, I had a feeling that it might be logind interfering (given that
it revokes the input file descriptor). So I tested a startx from root,
and indeed the issue is not present in that case.

I'll check with the systemd guys if this is something that comes from
them and if this can be fixable.
