After upgrading xorg to 1.9 now Gnome is not able to start session. This is the message I get after login in using GDM

If I run startx, everything works no complaints.
I don't use gdm so all I can offer is the standard shotgun approach I would
use in the same circumstances.
First, did you run revdep-rebuild after updating? I do that now every time
I update the system.
Second, I would re-emerge gdm. Why? Just because it's easy.
Third, the amount of gnome configuration data in your home directory is vast,
and some of it may be outdated. For that reason I keep another user account
on each machine (I call him "tester"). As root, I delete every gnome-related
directory in ~/tester so that he can start over from scratch with gnome when
he logs in. Amazing how many times that has uncovered errors in my own home
Oh, actually I would first check your ~/.gnomerc-errors for anything helpful.
I find that file is always quite large even when everything seems perfect
