I probably should have specified that my video chipset is a Radeon
X800 (R430), PCIE, instead of letting you all go hunting for it in the
attachments of my previous post.  And a little more playing reveals
that the panic goes away when I disable dri and dri2 in xorg.conf.  I
had those commented out in the previously-attached config, not
realising that they're enabled by default.  (Though X still doesn't
seem to work quite right without those, for whatever that's worth).
