Weird...I can see two possibilities: either you had some process using 
99% cpu that you didn't know of (yesterday), or some other user (root 
for example) was logged in at a console before you logged in to X. That 
way you won't get the correct permissions on /dev/dri/*, and 3d 
acceleration will fail.

Anyway, glad it works.
