Default Option "NvAGP" "0" causes crash w/ OpenGL.

I don't have serious problems with the default AGP setting (which I believe uses AGPGART driver) , but I have had glitches with KDE 3.1 cvs OpenGL screensavers. I decided to disable AGP using Option "NvAGP" "0" to see if it improved things.

But now, when I run anything using OpenGL, it crashes the system with a garbled screen. I'm forced to push the reset button on my PC.

Once, I had to manually fsck my drive when I rebooted because of some inconsistency error.

I've since removed the option from my XF86Config-4, but I'm left wondering how its possible that disabling AGP would cause my system to crash like that? Does anybody have any idea about this?

I'm running Debian 3.0 woody, linux 2.4.16 and Nvidia module, 1.0.2313. I know they're not the latest versions. But things are working fine for now.
