I also see lots of different apps saying:

/usr/bin/X11/startx: line 131: /dev/null: Permission denied

What are the permissions on /dev/null?  They should be
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 3 2006-04-03 01:51 /dev/null

I set the permissions back to rwxrwxrwx but when I reboot, it changes
back to crw-rw-r--

(nautilus:4179): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Cannot load module
(/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libcdda.so: cannot open shared object

What are the permissions on these shared libraries?

this doesn't exist. The other libs in this dir have permission rw-r--r--

What versions are your running?  Both of Debian (sarge, etch, sid, mix?) and
of the failing programs.

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main
deb http://ftp.debian.skynet.be/ftp/debian/ testing main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.skynet.be/ftp/debian/ testing main
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ testing main
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ testing main
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sid main

As for the failing programs, the first group is any program that needs a shell, and the second group is any that need the sound driver.

Are any packages in a broken state, unconfigured, or otherwise not installed
properly?  I.e. does apt-get install (whatever) suggest you do an
apt-get -f install?

No. Everything's OK.
