Hi!

With the help of X.org mailing list (thanks for Dan Nicholson!!!) the problem has been resolved. One should add the following file to the system and restart HAL.

$cat /etc/hal/fdi/policy/no-3dconnexion-trackpoint.fdi
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
        <device>
                <match key="info.product" contains="3Dconnexion">
                        <remove key="input.x11_driver"/>
                </match>
        </device>
</deviceinfo>

After that, SpacePilot is ignored by X server (not used as a TrackPoint), however, it works with spacenavd driver. I didn't test it with the proprietary driver deliver by 3dconnexion.com.

Kwant!
