You can not judge the "relative calm" of testing verses Sid based on
this time period. The xorg thing is a major change. I have found Sid to
be more usable than testing over the past several years --- but there
are times that I do not update until the dust clears. This is one of
those times.

Ubuntu's development branch has broken the xserver daily for weeks on
end. I have fixed x countless times as I help test. Who knew it was this
much trouble to change x-servers? I did not. They are trying to make it
more "modular" to make it better in the long run. I guess we will like
that some day way in the future.

Good luck.
