Can you try xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7, which includes nv-2.0.0-hang-fix.patch?
That fixed the hang on my machine.
I was getting the lockup of the system prior to xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7.
After this driver I get only 800x600. The system eventually crashes. I'll attach
the log related to the crashed system after time.

Not original reporter. This is with version xorg-x11-drv-nv-2.0.0-2.fc7
Just adding that the action leading to the crash now is the switching to VT screen.
Just passing on information regarding on the patch that was added. The patch
causes what was supposed to be resolved by the patch. I got lockups with the
patched driver and have good results with no lockup and better resolution with a
rollback to xorg-x11-drv-nv-220.127.116.11-3.fc7.
I believe this feedback provides information regarding the patched version.
Checking box though not bug reporter originator.

Log for reverted version of the nv driver installed.
for comparison to lowered resolution logs and VT crashing logs. I will change
to VT afterwards to see if I no longer get a crash when changing to a VT.
No more VT crashing with earlier nv version.
Jim, you're looking at a different bug - you've got a crash, not a hang, and it's happening with driver
2.0.0-2. Please file that bug separately so we don't confuse the two issues.
Will file separately for the crash. Thanks!
Not sure if this is the same bug, but my systems hangs too when starting X. HP
laptop with geforce go 7600.

I found out that in my case the problem was this
Pretty sure Ralf's issue was resolved in 2.0.0-2. Closing, please reopen if I'm
