Lightbulb Reproducable Hard Lockup - RH 8.0 & 3123

I can lock my system up at will under RH 8.0 and the 3123 kernel module/GLX. Here's my system:

Athlon XP 2100+
Gigabyte GZ-7VRXP (VIA KT333 chipset)
512 megs
Gainward geforce 4 4400
Sound is (ack!) onboard Creative CT5880
Running RedHat 8.0.

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status:
Status: Enabled
Driver: NVIDIA
AGP Rate: 4x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

I've tried running the stock RH 2.4.18-14 and my own vanilla 2.4.19 with the same results. Nvidia stuff compile from source rpms without issue. Okay, the reproducable lock is done by running the GFlux (which is part of XScreenSaver ) screensaver that comes with Gnome under RH 8.0. I'm sure GFlux comes with alot of other things too, so maybe someone else can produce this. After 5-10 minutes of running GFlux, my system locks hard and is gone from the network. CPU temp is okay - mid 60's C. System has good ventilation and power. I ran the UT 2003 demo great on this hardware, though I had Gentoo 1.2 before I put RH 8 on. Now running UT 2003 (retail) locks hard after 5 minutes or so of play, and this screensaver thing.

Anyone have a remotely similar experience?
