The hangs are not related to the 100.14.06 nvidia driver, so much I already figured because I can still reproduce them with 1.0.9755. So this leaves two possible culprits: either its the bleeding edge kernel (2.6.22-rc3-git7) or the even more bleeding edge scheduler (cfs). I'll have to investigate this even further...
Sorry for the trouble, seems I blamed the wrong guys. :-(
