Default odd bug when inserting nvidia module


My problem is a rather odd one. You can see it in the attached image.

That happens sometimes when booting my system, at the moment when the nvidia module is inserted. It does not happen everytime.

After that error, the system continues to boot, but Xorg won't start, instead I get only a black screen with a (not blinking) cursor, and can only reboot (switching to another virtual tty doesn't work).

When the system boots without that error, it runs absolute flawlessly, without any instability or other errors. It does run for hours/days under full load without problems.

I am using Gentoo Linux on an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 with Kernel 2.6.20 (using 2.6.19 also produces that error sometimes) and an Asus P5B deluxe motherboard.
Graphics card is an Geforce 7900 GS. Nothing is overclocked, everything is running at standard speed.
