NVIDIA & enlightenment problems?

hello all,
I have been getting some freaky errors with XFree and 
enlightenment/Nvidia drivers.  The problem is this, when I startx most 
of the time it works fine, and I am happy.  However sometimes 
enlightenment hangs on the startup.

At first I thought it was the fact that I was using 5.0 of Freebsd, so I 
wend down to 4.8 (because NVIDIA doesn't support 5.0 officially and the 
documentation nvidia provides says you need to add options USER_LDT to 
the kernel.)

However, this was not the case, XFREE still crashes with enlightenment. 
  I do not know why.

In another possibly related problem, I cannot use xawtv (only fxtv) 
because it supposedly cannot find libGL.  Now, without the NVIDIA 
drivers and just the nv drivers, xawtv runs, but I know get garbage on 
the screen and a brtr sigalarm.

does anyone have any idea what is going on?
