Xorg Freezes when running KTorrent


I tried upgrading to Xorg 7.3 recently but realized that the nvidia drivers dont work with it just yet. So I downgraded back to Xorg 7.2. During this process I re-configured Xorg, so my Xorg.conf file is brand new. I've never had a problem before. I'm using the latest nvidia drivers, and like I said, Xorg 7.2 and Xorg-server 1.3.0.0

Now it seems that whenever I run KTorrent, usually after a minute of having it open, my whole system freezes and completely locks up. All I can do is restart the computer with the restart button on the case or power it off.

This only started happening as recently as my upgrade / downgrade. So I figure its probably a result of my new xorg.conf file or one of the applications that came with the upgrade.

I'm using 64bit Gentoo on dual core.

Here is most of my xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Module"
    Load        "dbe"
    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga" 
    EndSubSection
    Load        "freetype"
    Load       "glx"

If you don't need accelerated 3d you could try the open source 'nv' driver instead. Worth a try anyway to see if the problem persists.

Ktorrent looks like the obvious suspect. Do any other apps cause the same problem? Are other torrent clients OK?
