In an attempt to reproduce your problem, I:
1. ran `eselect opengl set xorg-x11`
2. restarted xorg
3. logged into KDE 4.4.4 (same version as you)
4. made sure compositing was disabled
5. verified that my /var/log/Xorg.0.log looks like yours
6. ran htop

CPU usage according to htop varied between 0% and 2.5% in both cores.

gentoo ~amd64 (not funtoo)
gentoo-sources 2.6.34-r1
nvidia-drivers 256.35
xorg-server (you're running
Athlon 64 X2 4600+ (2.4GHz, very similar to your CPU)
GeForce 9600GT

I still think your wacky configuration (nvidia driver without glx) is one of the roots of your problem, but it must not be the only cause.
