I've been having the exact same problem with my FX5200 for about 3
months now. The difference only is that, for me, the screen freeze is
extremely consistent. I was using the Livna driver packages before.
Since reverting back to the nvidia X driver, I have had no issues with
freezing at all. Of course, I also no longer am able to play some of my
favorite OpenGL games (PP Racer and Foo Billiard, for example) either.

I was about to throw my hands in the air and spend the $$ to get a newer
card, but would rather not, especially if this really is a bug. Now that
someone else is experiencing it too, I'm more confident that it is
software related.

Have you tried the 1.0-9625 beta driver?  You might also want to post
an nvidia-bug-report.log on nvnews.net so that the NVIDIA folks can
look into this.
