Maybe dumb question: Did you upgrade "ruby" as instructed in
/usr/ports/UPDATING before upgrading Gnome? (I ran into that trap a
while ago)

Are your problems only related to X11 - or do you have the problems
when running in "console"-mode too?

Try switching virtual terminals with <Alt><Ctrl><F-key> (like
<Alt><Ctrl><F2>). First of all this switches you out to a
console-terminal leaving X running and thus gives to the ability to
track things down further.
