X stays black in Gentoo guest on Kubuntu 9.10 host -> closed as obsolete

I have a VirtualBox 3.1.0 machine running Gentoo (kernel 2.6.31) on a Kubuntu 9.10 host. I installed the guest additions that came with VirtualBox (that is, not the ones that are available as Gentoo packages), and fired up Xorg (1.6.5) after that. What happens then is that the virtual machine's window resizes but stays black, while the Xorg log file seems to indicate that X started successfully. It is possible to successfully switch to another tty (using Host + Fn), from which I can then kill X. When X is killed, the console does come back up normally.
I have tested this using a plain text console and a VESA framebuffer console (albeit in the opposite order), with the exact same result both times.
I'm attaching my Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf for your reference.
