Default Tuxracer hangs some time after some time

I use latest 4363 drivers.
I played Chroim with them and it was OK.
Later on I started Tuxracer. After 1-2 minutes the graphics gets grambled (as though the vertices are morphed or culled in some strange way) and then it simply hangs.
My 3D stuff runs perfectly stable in XP, so no overheating stuff could be here.

Any ideas?

Specs:
Processor: AMD Athlon 1400 (actualy I have underclocked it to 1050, the bastard hangs in the summer - bad cooler),
MOBO: ASUS A7A266 (Yes I know it's ****ty, didn't know that when I bought it).
Mem: 256MB DDR
Graphics Card: GeForce 2 MX 400.

There is an AGP issue with my mobo, but it's written in nVidia docs that they simply disable AGP (just like in windows).

Any help would be apreciated.

Default Something to add...

Here's something to add...
My distro is Mandrake 9.1.
I payed attention that my system simply hangs 10-20 minutes even without starting any 3D soft.
I'm using KDE desktop and I noticed that it tends to hang with Konqueror and KDevelop.
I have changed "nvidia" back to "nv" and now my system runs fine (not too fast, but stable).
nVidia guys please help.

P.S. I tried some other 3D games and they hang my system as well.

P.P.S.
