odd Gentoo Xorg 7.0 Gnome 2.14 NVidia driver conflict

I have a very strange problem.
I have Gnome 2.14, the new Xorg 7, and my NVidia graphics drivers installed. Everything works except text (any plain text) has the tendency to not be printed on the screen.
Any ideas?

Oh, and my kernel is 2.6.15-gentoo-r5. That shouldn't matter.

If it is xorg 7.1 I read a thread saying that it was broke even with the latest binary driver from NVidia and the guy had to go back to xorg 7
Have you tried using the binarys from the Nvidia web site ?
also theres' a bit of info here
Let me know how you get on because Im still using xorg 6.8 and will have to move up to xorg 7 soon but been holding back because there still seem to be a few probs with 7

Just noticed in title you say Xorg 7.0 dah!
