Default Complete X lockup when running beryl/compiz

When I'm running beryl or compiz on the 9629 driver I (randomly, usually infrequently) get what appears to be a complete system lockup. I can move the mouse but can't click on anything, caps lock and num lock don't work, and ctrl-sysrq-k/r do nothing.

I finally managed to have this happen when I was around another machine and managed to ssh into the locked system. Killing X and reloading the nvidia kernel module seems to fix things. I've got a nvidia-bug-report.log file that I'm attaching.

Note: I have not seen this problem when running metacity but since it happens so rarely it might just be coincidence.

Don't load the dri X module with nvidia drivers. Besides, you are running development versions of various software so expect the odd problem. If too much revert to the latest stable.

This happened with the final release of Ubuntu 6.10 with the 9625, 9626, and 9629 drivers. It has nothing to do with my using the development version of ubuntu.
