Default 1.0-9526 occasional few second freeze with freeciv

Running freeciv under FC5, with 1.0-9526, causes occasional hangs, usually few seconds, and then recovery. Still occasionally the screen flashes to black, very likely loss of sync (it's a CRT).
This happens almost sistematically when selecting a city and opening the related window (with the city options).
Of course, crashes apart, this makes the game unplayable...
freeciv is set with no "fog of war" and with "grid map on".
With 1.0-8774 situation is worse, I got a complete freeze after a couple of black flashes.

I noticed this errors, with dmesg (also with 8774, before hang):

...

and also in Xorg.0.log:

...

Attached is the bug report, with -logverbose 5.

Final note, I tried the option nvagp 1, which should use the internal NVidia AGP gart, but it seems it does not work. Reason of failure is the agpgart is loaded.
Which might be obvious, but how could I avoid it? Should be the kernel compiled without agpgart module at all? Or there is a way to prevent the module being loaded?
The BIOS is the latest for the MB.
Graphic card is FX5200 based.

Hints or suggestions? Anything to try?
Thanks.
