Description of problem:
NVIDIA 1.0-5336 drivers compile OK with kernel-smp-2.6.3-2.1.238,

No errors found in /var/log/XFree86.0.log or in $HOME/.xssesion-errors
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

2. as regular user, startx
total system hang requiring power-cycle to clear
Yes, I know NVIDIA taints the kernel.
