With beta drivers it's even worse - usually opengl apps produce black screen and the freeze
I can confirm these freezes. It freezes when using KDE with enabled composition or when I'm watching a movie with mplayer2 set to use vdpau. When I disable composition it works like a charm. Changing mplayer's video output to xv also fixes this problem.
