NVRM Xid error messages with nvidia-96xx driver

I installed kmod-nvidia-96xx- yesterday. After rebooting, the X server started correctly, but at the welcome login screen, my screen goes black for a bit whenever anything on the display changes. After logging in, the problem remains, plus my text is somewhat garbled.

There are no error messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. The only error messages I could find were in /var/log/messages:
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 8, Channel 00000000
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, ...
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 3, C ...

I was unable to figure out what these errors mean. Apparently NVIDIA is less than forthcoming about these error codes. I have tried turning AIGLX and Composite options off, but this makes no difference. Anybody else having this problem? Any solution ideas?

I am using a GeForce4 MX 4000 card and an AMD Athlon CPU.

Re: NVRM Xid error messages with nvidia-96xx driver

I just started getting this error preceded by another from gnome-session. The screen freezes and turns into either bands of yellow or green.

It only occurs upon ending an X session and really strange part is that it only occurs with one user. I've tried to recreate the problem as root without success and created a new user and the X sessions for both exit normally. The system functions fine otherwise but I cannot log into a tty until I reboot via ssh.

gnome-session[1761]: GLib-CRITICAL: g_key_file_load_from_dirs: assertion `!g_path_is_absolute (file)' failed
kernel: [226064.831462] NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0000 01015f00 0000009f 00000304 00000003 00000020

I forgot to mention that the keyboard is unusable as well.

However, if I log in via ssh and type the following command:
/usr/bin/startx --localhost :0.0
the screen clears and the terminal and keyboard are responsive once again.
