Ok, I have the X logs:
http://jdserver.homelinux.org/linux/Xorg.0.log-blank
http://jdserver.homelinux.org/linux/Xorg.0.log-good

Below is just a portion of the diff of those files.

What's interesting is that:

Also the blank X log file ends with:

It seems like a problem with the intel drm/dri kernel modules (not the
fb, I guess).
I didn't try disabling gdm yet (currently _busy_ with midterms, until
after Thursday).
