D'oh! Thanks to your question (and knowing that it worked for a
similar system), while simplifying my config file in order to post, I
tracked down exactly what the problem was. Now I'm a little
embarassed that I'd let this bother me for so long!
In the InputDevice section for "synaptics", this line was responsible:
Option "CircScrollDelta" "0.001"
I can't say whether this was related to the upgrade to xorg or to a
new version of the synaptics driver or what, but somewhere the
behaviour changed. The driver's changelog doesn't document this, but
everything seems to be working when I just remove the line.

What happens if you don't have a synaptics driver and you have this
problem? I have a thinkpad notebook that I tried to upgrade from
xfree86 to xorg and it dies on this 'EE' in the log.
The sucky part is that for some reason, I can't get the xfree86 version
installed back on this box. It just doesn't want to build the file
/etc/X11/XFree86Config-4 (or whatever it's called, from memory)
