I had a few problems like that, but they went away after a week or so of
picking-up upgrades. In particular doing a forced update of
nvidia-driver and its dependencies fixed a few of the problems.

Before you install xorg, create a /usr/X11R6 directory and run the
mergebase script which will update any references to /usr/X11R6 that
are in the base system.
