FreeBSD 7.2 Intel i915 / Xorg issue

Hi, I've seen several posts with similar issues, but none of them have 
helped me resolve my own.  I am using 7.2-RELEASE on my laptop with an 
Intel i915 graphics card.  My problem is that Xorg refuses to start 
(most of the time) and posts an error in the log:
    drmDropMaster failed: Unknown Error -1

I have gotten X to start on occasion, but I've never been able to get 
fluxbox to start.  The command "Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf -retro" 
always works correctly.

dmesg output:

Any help would be very much appreciated.
