Default X lockup with 4363 drivers

I'm having lots of problems with X lockups and the nvidia drivers on my system. At random moments, X will start consuming all the CPU time, effectively rendering the machine unusable unless I login remotely and kill X. A strace of the xserver in this state reveals:

31018 --- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
31018 sigreturn() = ? (mask now [])
31018 --- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
31018 sigreturn() = ? (mask now [])
31018 --- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
31018 sigreturn() = ? (mask now [])
31018 --- SIGALRM (Alarm clock) @ 0 (0) ---
31018 sigreturn() = ? (mask now [])

repeatedly.

It also seems that it's not performing properly. Most of the GL screensavers from xscreensaver look fairly appauling. There's lots of flickering, and things that should be solid are not.

Video card: GeForce2 MX400
Driver version: 1.0.4363
Distribution: Debian unstable
Video BIOS version: 03.11.01.48.00
Processor: Athlon XP 2000+
Motherboard: Rebadged ASUS.

Forgot to mention. The problems with flickering and non-solid solid things only happens when I send the screensaver to fullscreen - it works fine in a window.
