Default OpenGL - Severe Problems


I bought a new Videocard, and installed the new 5328 Drivers (installer had to compile them since I use my own kernel; 2.4.24, also tried with 2.4.23)
If I start my OpenGL Screensaver in KDE (it's called "Euphoria"), the screensaver starts, displays correctly it's contents. After a while (don't know how long exactly, about 10-30 min) my computer stops responding. But not just so, no. It's really curious:
- The Screensaver continues moving
- The Keyboard & Mouse don't respond (numlock, strg+alt+Fx don't work)
- the Computer answers pings, the sshd and other servers are still working
- if I do a "init 3" via SSH, the computer enters runlevel 3, but the Screensaver
continues, mouse&keyboard stay locked

This didn't happen with my old GeForce 2MX and the old drivers with the same kernel. Old drivers didn't work correctly with my card though...

Model: GeForce FX 5200
IRQ: 11
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

RedHat Linux 9.0, Kernel 2.4.24 or 2.4.23, self-compiled
Athlon 900
Gigabyte Mainboard. I think it's 7-GX or something simmilar

Has anybody seen something like that? Or has anyone an idea what could cause such behaviour?
