Default 173.14.12 - Flashing Black Screen, followed by X lock up

First, sometimes while playing Nexuiz (OpenGL) the entire screen will flash to a black screen and then immediately flash back. This isn't all together annoying and is very bearable, but this always occurs prior to X locking up on me (but X doesn't lock up every time it happens either). I was watching the system logs go by as this was happening and noticed these sort of errors occuring sometimes when the screen would flash:

(from /var/log/errors.log)

After a while of this, X starts to throw a fit, locking up everything for a good number of seconds, than unfreezing than immediately freezing again. During one of these un-locked up seconds, I managed to switch into another console. For whatever reason, I thought I'd be able to repeat this after switching back to X, but X decided to lock up for good. I ran the nvidia-bug-report script immediately on reboot.

The Xorg.0.log shows this sort of stuff:
tossed event which came in late
mieqEnequeue: out-of-order valuator event; dropping.
tossed event which came in late
mieqEnequeue: out-of-order valuator event; dropping.
tossed event which came in late
mieqEnequeue: out-of-order valuator event; dropping.

with some of these at the end (I'm guessing this is when X locked up for good)
