I don't have a solution, but just writing to say that maybe it's not the
mga_hal module that is causing your problem.
That module, IIRC, is something you install from the Matrox site. But,
when I installed it X did not work correctly -- I think it hung on exit
and there was some odd behavior while running. So, I just deleted the
module and now I get on startup:
(EE) MGA: Failed to load module "mga_hal" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) MGA(0): Matrox HAL module not loaded - using builtin mode setup instead
but otherwise X starts runs fine.

Maybe that's the real problem?
