Default Repeatable X Crash, dual FX580 on HP Z600

Greetings

Problem: Spontaneous, random, and fairly repeatable X crashes when users resize windows or change window attributes such as maximizing, minimizing, etc...

Running dual FX580 cards on HP Z600 workstations

OS: RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.2
KERNEL: 2.6.18-92.el5PAE
XORG-X11: 1.1.1-48.41.el5
NVRM: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module 195.36.15
GCC: 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)
GPU: NVIDIA Quadro FX580 (512)
RedHat Ticket: 861593

Attached are the bug report and Xorg logfile during crash.

Here is gdb attached to Xorg when it crashed, unfortunately, some lines in there (0x0000001?) seem to be nonsense, have seen RHEL5 gdb have similar issues when attached. Of course, there is no nvidia debuginfo, so the remaining missing symbology is attributed to such.

Have tried various things, it looks like most of the options I am used to, XaaNoPixmapCache, XaaNoOffScreenPixmaps, AccelMethod "xaa", all are not activated when I add them to the driver sections of the xorg.conf - I assume these have been incorporated into the driver with the newer versions.

Have tried back drivers as well 185.18.29 is the driver pre-packaged on the HP resource CD as approved for this workstation.

I understand that the Nehalem chipsets aren't supported officialy until RHEL5.3, however, whatever hardware acceleration that may or may not be occuring I doubt highly is directly attributable to this problem.

Any suggestions, comments, complaints, etc are more than welcome
