I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro (RV 250) which had the same symptoms - 3D
applications would hard freeze. I can still ssh into the box from
another machine, but killing X did nothing, so I think the freeze is
actually the video card.
The suggestion above to add
Option "AGPMode" "4"
to the device section of xorg.conf fixed the problem.
