Default Re: 185.18.14: any OpenGL causes Xorg to crash and then hang

I'm having the same problem. OpenGL apps cause X to freeze. The display locks on start of KDE 4.2 with desktop effects enabled. With XIDs appearing in the system log. I was able to ssh in to create a bug report and use Magic SysRq to reboot.

I started up a simple session with twm and some xterms, and the XIDs appear in the system log as soon as I start an OpenGL app such as glxgears:
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 8, Channel 00000001
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000003
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000004
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000005
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000007
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000009
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000011
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 16, Head 00000000 Count 00000012

The machine freezes temporarily in this case, but glxgears eventually displays. As glxgears runs, it periodically outputs an XID in the log.
