But what to do?? Searching debian.org I only find two versions
of XFree86, the one I have installed (and which is apparently
almost identical to the one I was running) and a somewhat
older one. Does there exist an apt-get undo ??

Is libc stable? I notice than when kreadconfig seg faults
it is in libc. When I was playing with Mplayer, all the 
seg faults were in libc. One involved realloc so I assumed
the app was passing a bad pointer but one seg fault was
on a memalign and the params were good.
