I looked at it too, and it seemed to me to be stating the issue was a
user error.

Message 40 indicates the user included "server arguments to startx (-dpi
100)", which apparently prevents reading of the X server startup files.

In Message 45, the OP states "I didn't realise that server arguments
would bypass xserverrc."

So it would seem to be not relevant to your problem.

In my experience, this usually means a bad pointer, which in one case
accesses memory in a location for which it has no permission or some
such, and in the other case is not "important".

In any case, there's a problem you should report to someone, I think.

Perhaps Nvidia?
