I've tried both 1.0-9746 and 1.0-9631 drivers and it locks up with both. I have an HP dual-core Athlon system (a1483w) with a built-in nVidia graphics card and a GeForce 6200 LE driving a second monitor. When I truss against the Xorg server with it's spinning I get output like this:

....
Received signal #14, SIGALRM [caught]
lwp_sigmask(SIG_SETMASK, 0x00002000, 0x00000000) = 0xFFBFFEFF [0x0000FFFF]
setcontext(0x08047390)

Well I must apologize. Turns out I was still using the "nv" driver instead of the "nvidia" driver. Once I got that changed everything works like a champ.
