weird X-server problem

Hi All,

I'm experiencing problems with the X-server on one (only One!!) of my
machines (all with different hardware)
What I see:
   -Most programs display OK.
   -Supertux in full-screen displays with an offset to the right of +/- a
      quarter of the screen for some users or does not work for at all for
   -lbreakout2 (from freshrpm) hangs for the same users not able to run
      supertux in full-screen mode after quiting. For the others it works
      OK. For newly created users it does hang.
   -Some programs I run on a OpenVMS system and displaying on this linux
      machine crash. Analyzing the problem leads to the fact that the programs
      get unexpected events.
   -I experience the problem both running gnome and kde
The hardware :
   -Asus P4P800 Mobo
   -Asus graphics board with Geforce FX chip
   -1Gb Ram
Software :
   -F8 (fresh installed + updates)
   -Nvidia driver from livna

I suspect some configuration problem, but I cannot find anything different
from my other machines.
Can anyone give me some advise please, to get some clue to pinpoint the
problem and hopefully solve it.
