I think SDL requires you to init video in order to get joystick
events. I know that is *used*
to (see for instance
but perhaps it has been changed. I wouldn't be surprised if it hadn't, though.

and establishes connections to system-dependant souces of various
events. In the case
of X, it opens the connection to the X server.
