I have exactly the same problem with an ATI card (radeonhd driver)
except that the STATE of Xorg is *GIANT and recently I've seen CPU usage
figure exceed 400% - yes *four* hundred!!
In my search for a solution I've found someone with the same problem
with a Matrox card.
I've come to the conclusion that Xorg 7.3 is a crock - at least on
FreeBSD - since I've never had some many problems under any previous
version of Xorg, or XFree86. Is it possible to install Xorg 7.2 on

Hmm, I see this too (although I think it is freetype on my box, not
misc) - any idea what it means?
