Indeed, reverting glx-diversions 0.5.1 requires reverting nvidia-... to
340.93-1 and solves the problem.
However, reverting nvidia-... to 340.93-1 but keeping glx-diversions to
0.6.0 does not solve it – which gives some evidence that glx-diversions
0.6.0 is the culprit.

You can try to kill gdm from a root text console and launch X through the
startx command from your user text console : then gdm should start without
crashing. It thus seems that this is in the very first stages of gdm
launching that the issue arises.

Hoping this helps ; i can't find other interesting log files than syslog
and messages, tell me if i should look another one.
