Code:
cd /etc/X11
mv xorg.conf xorg.old
Reboot, test for the problem.

Code:
cd /etc/X11
mv xorg.old xorg.conf
Code:
aptitude remove libtxc-dxtn0
Check for the problem (you shouldn't need to reboot or restart x for that one)
Code:
aptitude install libtxc-dxtn0
etc

I honestly don't think it's the absense of libtxc-dxtn0, as that only provides s3tc in an external lib, which opengl does not require. As far as I know none of the programs you listed require it, it's only needed/used by some games.

The DRI permissions problem is the more likely one. I've always set up an xorg.conf with at least those contents, so I can't say if that's always the case when it's missing.

Yes, that was my impression as well. I'll try the experiment of removing xorg.conf when I have a free moment.
