I have encountered in the system exactly the same problem

	uname -a
	FreeBSD nonamehost 9.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #0 r221598:
	Sat May 7 17:28:18 EEST 2011
	ivan at nonamehost:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/mk9  amd64

	pciconf -lv|grep Ge
	    device     = 'Geforce 8400M GS (unknown)'

	pkg_info|grep nvidi
	nvidia-driver-270.41.06 NVidia graphics card binary drivers for
	hardware OpenGL ren

	dmesg|grep NVRM
	NVRM: Xid (0000:01:00): 13, 000a 00000000 00008297 000019d0
	0000003c 00000100

they were observed for nearly all nvidia drivers for amd64...
I tried to change the different options:
setenv VDPAU_NVIDIA_NO_OVERLAY=1 -> ~/.cshrc
Option         "Xinerama" "False" and Option         "Xinerama" "0"
-> /etc/X11/xorg.conf
cat /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

and it seems to me it helped for flashplayer...

but the situation as a whole wants the best, because these problems
continue with using VDPAU

so I'm leaning that cause these problems in drivers...

sorry for my english...
