i actually have the same problems, but i'm using the nv driver (quadro
fx 560). i think this is somehow related to xorg and
gnash/firefox. can you try to disable the gnash plugin in firefox? i'm
not completely sure but xorg seems to be more stable since then.

Thanks Toni,

I was running gnash indeed and found it out the hard way. I was experiencing this bad behavior because I was running securelevel 3 ass well so Xorg kept crashing like crazy and I couldn't do anything else.

I finally gave up on gnash and hopefully everything will work better now.

Thanks for your help. This message of yours made me uninstall gnash and I think for the better.
