segfault 11 is, if memory serves me well, usually caused by dodgy hardware.
(RAM / L1 cache usually)

ok, from your Xorg log file, you have a 

Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA 1064SG [Mystique]

card. mga 'should' be the right one, but i wonder whether it would try too hard
to get all the bells and whistles running, which may not be such a good idea in
an old machine.

you can disable DRI  in your xorg.conf by commenting out the 

Load "dri"

I am not sure how to do it with a blank xorg.conf though. there should be some
parameter for xorgcfg (you are using it to generate a valid xorg file , right? )

i imagine xubuntu is assuming newer hardware, and therefore more 'features'
enabled, which will definitely cause some problem for you.

for (the same reasons)^(-1) as above.
