Default Re: (II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART. Error

I'm having similar problems on a laptop (Asus U6V) with the exact same GPU.

Vital info:
Kernel 2.6.30 RC4
NVIDIA 180.51
Xorg server 1.5.3

Every now and then - approx. once a (8-hour work-)day (sometimes not at all) the screen becomes totally corrupted (windows tiled and mostly black) and responsiveness goes down the drain. Music keeps playing in the background and I can CTRL+ALT+F1 to a terminal and reboot.

Stopping and restarting X (including rmmod'ing and modprobing the nvidia kernel module) seems to have no effect. I took a picture of the login screen after restarting X:



And after a reboot some corruption still remained, but strangely only on the Task Manager bar (black'n'white dots)- the rest of the screen is so far corruption-free:


The kernel log showed the following Xid errors:
