Second problem: using gdm and gnome-session, the mouse stops working after the first logout, that is, the mouse is frozen at the second gdm login screen. I observed this behavior also on an i386 system freshly installed with X 4.1.0 three weeks ago (but not on previously-installed continuously-upgraded systems), and switched to /dev/gpmdata, which solved it for some time, then it broke again, so I removed gpm. Unfortunately, there is no /dev/gpmdata on PPC, and with the X keymap broken I kinda "need" gpm to work at the console, so I haven't tried removing it.

I get the same thing with KDE/kdm after pulling down the updates in testing. The X cursor does not respond to mouse movement, and restarting the X server fixes it. I haven't really had much time to look in to that, or the other problem that popped up at the same time (fonts in KDE are completely screwed up - all the fonts keep getting set to Agate, and Agate isn't a very useful terminal font).
