I had similar troubles with the _previous_ bpo version, also only having
only gdm running with no-one logged (it was very notable accessing the
system from remote via ssh, eg accessing the "idle" office workstation
from home & so on) the system was quite unusable. 

Unfortunately, i had'nt investigated more (no time :(

After the last update, nema problema:
ii  xserver-xorg   6.9.0.dfsg.1-5 the X.Org X server
