	I had upgraded the nvidia one at the same time since I knew it 
needed to be rebuilt. The 2nd step to resolve this is to portdowngrade 
to the previous version, still no luck. Just for shites and giggles I
built world and am letting it run for a while. Next step is recompile X.
After that, it unless I get any more suggestions, it'll be go back to 5.4 .

	Thanks for the suggestions guys, I guess I was jumping to conclusions
too quick.

		Thanks, Tuc
