I should mention, though - I used to have issues with the nVidia driver
putting my machine in an unusable state, similar to what you are
describing.  Though the more recent versions of that driver seem to have
mostly fixed my issues, it still gives intermittent problems.  As a
result, I have since been using the Xorg nv driver.

What made the problem worse is that I couldn't get any debugging
information, no matter what debugging options I had built into the
kernel.  Just mentioning this in case you _are_ willing to do this.  In
my case, I wasn't able to grab anything useful.

(By the way, does anything except 'minfree' exist in /var/crash ?)
