Default Consistent hard lockup with 195.36.24 on GeForce6600 when running OpenOffice in KDE

I recently upgraded to 195.36.24 and kernel 2.6.34. However, if I start up openoffice while in KDE 4 (current svn checkout) and then click on any menu item, for instance to open a file, the X server immediately and consistently locks up, spinning hard with 100% of one core, and I have to kill X to get back control. The mouse pointer still moves, albeit sluggishly, but everything else is locked solid.

I did not have this problem with 185.18.36 under kernel

Interestingly, this does not happen when I run under the twm instead of KDE. It does, however, happen even when I turn off compositing in KDE.

I'm attaching the nvidia-bugs output.
