Default System freeze

Hello. I have a problem. X loads up fine, but after clicking around in e.g. Firefox for a couple of minutes, the screen freezes. The mouse still moves but I can't kill X or switch to a terminal (thus I can't generate an error log). This never happens with the plain nv driver. It also seems like it will only happen on my desktop, when running a game (in this case, Alien Arena), it doesn't freeze. I have looked around threads with similar problems but it seems like those problems should've been solved with the new drivers.

I run KDE 3.4.3 on Debian unstable, kernel version 2.4.27. My motherboard is an Asus K8N (Nforce3) and my graphics card is an ASUS V9400-X/TD 128MB GeForce4 MX.

I have installed the NVIDIA drivers according to this guide:
For the record, my nvidia-glx is version 1.0.8174-1.

Relevant lines in xorg.conf:
Section "Module"
	Load	"bitmap"
	Load	"dbe"
	Load	"ddc"
#	Load	"dri"
	Load	"extmod"
	Load	"freetype"
	Load	"glx"
	Load	"int10"
	Load	"record"
	Load	"type1"
	Load	"v4l"
	Load	"vbe"
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"NVIDIA Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000 AGP 8x]"
	Driver		"nvidia"
