Default X hangs w/ 1.0-8776 and extmod

I am running kernel 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 x86_64 with Nvidia 1.0-8776 drivers
(running a later version video driver causes my 1080i display to pan) and a Nvidia Geforce 7600GS video card.

When I load the module 'extmod', I get a black screen when I attempt to watch live TV or a pre-recorded video in MythTV. Without extmod the frame rate is rather poor but the system is stable.

I am including a copy of the nvidia bug report having run startx -- -logverbose 6 prior to the crash. note: I did have to remote into the box to run the script as all local consoles hang.

my mythfrontend.log reports the following error: NVP: Timed out waiting for free video buffers. From what I could find others experienced these problems using XvMC excelleration. I don't have that enabled either. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I am running a dual core proc and have verified that I am not using MMCONFIG and I do have the most recent MOBO bios updates.

I have also attempted disabling one proc via my bios to see it that would make a difference, but it still hangs.
