Run "startx 2>errorlog.txt" and then look in errorlog.txt for any lines that begin with (EE).
As you can see its saying it can't find any compatible drivers for my
Not really; rather, it can't activate certain features/modules.

Also, I removed xserver-common and xserver-xfree86 and installed them
from the experimental tree and discover reported that it couldn't find
any xservers for my particular card (the attached error.log is from
after installing from the experimental tree). It says that driver
version 1.1 is installed (or is it 1.3?) and that 1.5 is needed. :(

If you only have one video card, either comment out/remove the BusID line, or make sure it matches the output of lspci (only remember that one is hex and the other decimal).

Turn off the fbdev option in /etc/X11/XF86Config if it's on ("true").

This looks to be your real problem; it can't find your mouse as defined. You'll need to tinker with the mouse settings.
