Default driver compiles fine, module loads, but xorg crashes at startup

I am running debian unstable, on an amd64 architecture, with glibc 2.6
I always run my own custom kernel, which is 2.6.19* at the moment.
I have the newest nvidia driver, which has always worked fine for me,
until today I recompiled my kernel to add FUSE (in-kernel, not module).
Kernel compiled fine, installed it, reboot.
As usual, I go to recompile the nvidia driver.
Works like a charm, I install it, type "startx", and xorg crashes without any apparant reason, it only gives me this short backtrace:
Backtrace:
0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x84) [0x80c4724]
1: [0xb7f0d420]
2: X(main+0x2aa) [0x806ea5a]
3: /lib/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xd8) [0xb7d1a7c8]
4: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

Nothing more.
Nothing useful to be found in the Xorg log files either.
It runs fine with the "nv" driver.
The things I have tried:
* cleaning the entire driver, then reinstalling again
* make clean in my kernel source dir, and recompiling
* using an older version of the nvidia driver (96*)
* reinstalling all the xorg/glx related stuff
* manually removing every "nvidia" related file off my harddrive, and reinstalling the driver

Nothing seems to work!
Can anyone help me out?

Edit: ok the log file is attached now!

I am quite sure that the person here (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=95767) who thinks his problem is caused by SLUB is having the same problem as I am.
We both run debian unstable, and same symptoms (nv runs fine, nvidia installs fine, but makes xorg crash). I run kernel 2.6.19 however, also custom compiled.
Could this be related to the fact that debian recently switched to glibc 2.6?
