xorg not working after synaptic upgrade (Lenny stable)

I did the usual synaptic update and upgrade and after I rebooted the X
server refuses to start. I'm on Debian stable Lenny. I temporarily
changed the "nvidia" string in xorg.conf to "nv" and it works in a low
resolution now to write this mail. I've included the synaptic log of
what got upgraded below. Anyone know what went wrong and what I should
do to fix it? I think I used the nvidia proprietary driver package in
the contrib or non-free repository in february, but I dont remember
all details since I tried so many things. I suppose there is something
wrong between the new kernel and the old nvidia drivers. But shouldn't
that be upgraded automatically when the kernel debian package gets
updated? Maybe I downloaded their package from their site and
installed it manually. Hmm..

In any case I thought I should ask a preemptive question before I
break anything further ;).
