Default Re: 3xx drivers causing EQ overflow

I just found this thread and am having the same constant EQ overflow issues. My uptime is usually less than a day. It happens most frequently initially when I open firefox, everything but my mouse locks up with no resolve, I hear my cpu fan shoot way up and I have to do a hard power off. It's happened once with mplayer with vdpau.

-I use XFCE desktop with xfwm, no compositing.
-I'm on 3.10 kernel, Xorg server 1.14, Slackware 14.1
-Zotac GTS 450 AMP Edition with 331.20 drivers, problem remained with earlier 3xx drivers.

Xorg.log looks like this:
