Default Reboot on X start with FreeBSD 4.8 and 1.0-4365

I just installed the new driver for FreeBSD, install went fine using make setup with no arguments or flags, but when now when I try to start X, the screen flickers like X is going to start, but then my system becomes unresponsive for a few seconds, then reboots.

Logs, X and kernel config files here

(edit: more info)
Motherboard is MSI K7T Turbo2 with VIA KT133 chipset
Card is TNT2 with 32MB of RAM
Using FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE
X version is 4.3.0_1.

I also run Slackware 8.1 with the generic kernel and version 1.0-4363 of the nVidia driver, and Windows 98 SE with the latest driver for that platform on this system, no problems.

The nv driver works fine, but I had some problems with the 1.0-3203 version of the nvidia driver that I'd hoped the new release would fix. I could run one GL application, but if I didn't restart X before running another one my system would become totally unresponsive and I could not log in remotely to shut down. I was also experiencing problems compiling apps that used the GL libs.
