Drowning in a KDE4 - xorg - nvidia glass of water after updating all over the weekend.

I haven't had an X/kde problem in years and probably because of that I  
am stuck.  Problems are learning opportunities;)  To confirm that my  
las xorg.conf was done with xorgconfig and almost identical to my old  
XF86config files and all depreciated.

When trying to start my brand new kde it stuck with Akonadi and the  
las line was that it was preparing to launch  
/usr/local/kde4/lib/kde4/kio_trash.so and it doesn't move from there.   
I have to kill it with ^c.  I have a copy of the last run bye using  
startx 2>&1 | /tmp/TestLog.log and am attaching the file.

As I mentioned my xorg.conf didn't work so I created a new on with  
Xorg -configure and then ran the nvidia-config and used the result  
also attached.

To confuse myself even more I decided to test it with twm and xtwm  
because I was sure that they would work in the meantime but neither of  
them even wanted to come up.  They change all my black terminal  
windows to white and make it impossible to read and it shuts xorg down  
immediately.  It would seem from the nvidia errors that the problem is  
with the nvidia driver that I have been using without problems for  
several months now, so I also tried the vesa driver with similar  
problems.  I'm also attaching the Xorg.0.log, just in case.

Resuming I don't know if my problems are with kde4, xorg, or the  
nvidia driver and have no idea where to go from here, so any  
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
