Default lockup under 195.30 with a G210

I found with my new G210 that if left sitting for a while with the display off (from dpms) that the driver will eventually go into a completely lockup and just sit there using 100% cpu in kernel land. I haven't been able to get it to produce anything in the Xorg.0.log (X never gets a chance to write anything to the log), and the only thing that shows up in dmesg or /var/log/message is the soft watchdog timer complaining that CPU#0 has locked up. When i look with top i see that X is using 100% of cpu time on one core, attempting to kill it causes it to start reporting that X is no longer using any memory (0 virtual 0 resident and 0 shared) but it continues to spin around waiting on something, it never leaves kernel land to actually act on the signal. I've switched down to 190.53 and it didn't happen tonight (but it always took a day or two to happen), and will see if it happens any more. If anyone has any suggestions for what to do to get more information about what's going on i'd be glad to try them.
