updated xorg leads to failures

hi all

i had a really nice system going. nvidia drivers installed and running, xorg running, compiz/beryl running great. very impressed with fedora7

i installed updates like the system recommended to me.
this was obviously a stupid move - theres a reason no one installs updates from microsoft - i didnt figure it would apply here too.

sure, xorg runs, and the nvidia boot splash shows, but i cant enable desktop effects. correction: after the first boot, compiz was running, but trying to launch beryl made x restart instantly. i disabled effects in an attempt to disable/reenable to see if it would fix itself but all thats happened is now i cant enable them at all.

additionally, ive apparently lost the ability to drop back to a terminal. ctrl+alt+f# merely restarts x and presents me with a login display. which is stupid.

nvidia drivers v1.0-9755
Build ID: xorg-x11-server

important part from xorg.conf, i had trouble with agp and the infamous missing title bar from gdm windows
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Card0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "nVidia Corporation"
    BoardName      "NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
    Option         "NvAGP" "1"
    Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
does anyone have any ideas why xorg would do this?
is anyone suffering the same problems?
