And last but not least, put this into your config:
Option "UseEvents" "false" #something's broken with G8x or newer cards and latest drivers here, so make sure it is off
Unfortunately it does not seem that all my xorg.conf cruft was the issue.

This fixes it. Specifically, turning off SLI fixes it. The problem persists with both AFR and SFR. Thankfully, turning off SLI is a good enough temporary solution.

Thanks for the ideas, everyone!
