It died during the night when left running xscreensaver, actually. And no, I wasn't running Compiz. I'll try that to see if I can make it crash faster. When it did lock up, there was no message at all in Xorg.0.log.

By the way, I've noticed X "pause" for a second at a time, and maybe this corresponds to the WAIT message. And you're right about the brightness not working. I looked at the manpage of xbacklight, and it says it uses xrandr to do its stuff. I read somewhere that the nvidia drivers don't support newer versions xrandr, so I'm not surprised.
