xorg-server-1.6.1.901-r5 is borken!

Upgraded today xorg-server to 1.6.1.901-r5..

And spent 2 hours trying to revive my KDE+Xorg.

Symptoms: Xorg starts, mouse cursor appears, and you can move it. Then kdm tries to start.. and everything hangs. No reaction to ctrl-alt-backspace, no reaction to ctrl-alt-del, only can reboot my laptop holding its “power” button for a few seconds.

/var/log/Xorg.0.log says:

Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X(xorg_backtrace+0x38) [0x8139f98]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
at http://wiki.×.org
for help.
Please also check the log file at “/var/log/Xorg.1.log” for additional information.

and nothing more.
I tried to rebuild xf86-input-* – nothing changed.

Helped only downgrading to xorg-server-1.6.1.901-r4.

So, r5 is a good candidate for /etc/portage/package.mask :)
