I'm not sure if there's a trivial way to roll back a whole set of changes.
If someone who knows apt better than me knows one, cool.

So in the meantime, let's figure out why X is crashing. The updates have
worked fine for me, and I hadn't heard any complaints.

What video card do you have? Do you know what triggers the crash? (3D is a
likely culprit -- perhaps some of the OpenGL screensavers?) If you could
post the log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) from the crash, that'd be helpful.
