After upgrading to 185.18.14-1 starting X using gdm failed -- quite like
in message #20 (everything starts, logo flickers and then X dies). I was
able to start X using almost every way but gdm (startx, plain X server
etc) and gdm was the one to blame. 

There is 10 second timeout before it assumes server failure
(/usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf, GdmXserverTimeout). After setting timeout
to 20 seconds, everything works again. You can override defaults
in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf, add GdmXserverTimeout=20 to [daemon] section.
