This is a bit of a stab in the dark, but perhaps re-building your xorg-server 
port might fix it. When I update my xserver, I have to rebuild my nvidia 
driver or x will crash when any opengl app runs.
So in your case, it may be some part of X causeing the crash.
I'm running kde & haven't had that problem though.
