Which problem are you having?

The one where xscreensaver sends X into an infinite timer loop or the one 
where the machine just locks tight and freezes?

I see the infinite timer loop issue once in a great while on the nv 
driver, but never the lockup.  With the nvidia driver I get lockups about 
once a week.
