GDM Crashes After Latest Xorg Updates for FC2

Interestingly enough, FedoraNews www.fedoranews.org does not have this
xorg-x11-6.7.0-9 update in their list. Wonder why!
As an aside, does anyone know what one should do to not have the yum nightly
update run over this older version of xorg-x11?
Thanks and best wishes!
