Default NVIDIA drivers and system hangs/app seg faults

I thought this seemed to be tied to the nvidia kernel module - specifically the internal AGP driver, as both myself and my friend (both running AMD systems) have had the same problems on FreeBSD (myself) and Linux (friend).

I recompiled the the kernel module, commenting out the line in nv-freebsd.h that reads:

#undef USE_OS_AGP_GART

So far I've been able use multiple GL contexts with fewer problems. I've gotten a few seg faults and hangs though. What is very wierd about this is that the kernel isn't even given a chance to panic, the system just fizzles.

And for those of you including DRI in your X configs, shame shame shame!
