Question Nvidia drivers hang my system

I am running the "testing" version of Debian. My kernel version is 2.6.8. When I start XFree86 up I get the nvidia splash screen and then Gnome appears to load as normal presenting me with my typical desktop. I may swirl the mouse around as much as I like and the text/graphics on xmms and gkrellm scroll across the app as expected. As soon as I click a mouse button the text/graphics quit scrolling and the system locks up. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (or any other keys for that matter) produces no effect and I have to reboot the system. Can someone assist me in getting my graphics card working properly? It is a GeForce FX 5700LE.
