On a different machine I was also able to reproduce the problem.  Even
a glxinfo would cause a reboot!

I noticed that the nvidia-driver and xorg-server packages were old so I did a:


portupgrade -vr

Perhaps both of our setups were bitten by the portupgrade -vr while
running X upgrades nvidia-driver and the kldunload nvidia causes a
spontaneous reboot bug...

Everything works fine now.  Heck even googleearth :)
