No, this upgrade, had it happened, should _not_ have busted any existing working FC5 installs that use the nVidia binary driver. In a correctly installed system the driver is installed as an RPM with dependencies to a specific X.org version, so X.org wouldn't be updated until the binary driver was available. I don't know if the nVidia drivers provided by the various repos out there have correctly implemented dependencies, but if not, then they should be fixed, and this would not be an issue.
