I had that exact symptom when I upgraded my kde3 ports and upgraded Xorg 
at the same time.  It drove me nuts for a few days until I found the 
solution.  I have some notes I have to go through but I'll post what I 
did from my notes as soon as I get a chance to review them.  (I was 
tunning 7.2 -STABLE at the time)
