Can anyone tell me why, how to fix, or even what is happening on my machine.

I ran the 169.x driver for a long time with no issues at all. I decided to upgrade to 173, and noticed instantly that any time I run an OpenGL application X crashes instantly. The odd thing is that I am not seeing any errors on the screen (maybe going off too fast), and I do not see any errors in any of the log files. X shuts down instantly, my machine goes black, X starts back up, and I sit here staring at the log in screen. If I go back to the 169 driver, the issues does not occur.

I'm not positive it's OpenGL applications, but it seems any game or GL application I try crashes it instantly. Not even a second to acknowledge the crash... screen goes black and that's it.

I'm running FreeBSD 7.X (RELENG_7), nothing custom in the kernel, Intel 6600, GeForce 8800, compiz, gnome, and nothing really fancy.

I've had other tell me to roll back to 169, but no one can tell me why this is happening, if it's a problem for everyone, if there is a fix, etc.

Any bits of information would be greatly appreciated.
