System won't fix itself.  Updated software won't break it.

Search the archives for lots of related information. (There was one
update of the xorg software that had an issue but it has been updated
again and I have seen no complaints recently.)
Also, there were a lot of different issues with the early release of FC4
that were fixed over time by updates to a _lot_ of different packages.

If you want a stable, secure system where everything works as expected
then do a simple 'yum update' and get all installed packages updated to
the latest.  If you still have problems after that then ask again.
