Ok, I've downgraded all/most of X stuff to Squeeze state.

Curiously, didn't help at first, when I started GDM after upgrade. But
after reboot (/sbin/reboot) everything works fine again, with
effectively my original configuration ("effectively", because
previously I didn't have DRI, NoAccel and R4xxATOM entries, now I have
them commented out).

Any suggestions how to diagnose this problem further?
I'll try to upgrade again to current unstable version and try packages
I've built earlier (6.9.0, 6.11.0) - this time remembering always to
reboot after installation.
