I'm using the debian packages,
nvidia-kernel-2.6.16.5-kanotix-2_1.0.8756-4+1_i386.deb
and nvidia-glx which I got from packages yesterday.

I can only run xorg for about 1 minute before it locks up on me, eating 95% of my cpu and preventing me from doing anything. It's very reproducible.
You realize you posted this in the 'NVIDIA Solaris Forum', it's likely to get more eyes over at 'NVIDIA Linux Forum'.
