nv driver fails with Xorg 6.8.2 (GeForce FX 5200/FreeBSD)

Dear All,

After an upgrade from Xorg 6.8.2 to Xorg 6.8.2 on FreeBSD 5.3 (Stable) I
have been unable to get the X server to start. The card (NVidia GeForce FX
5200) seems to be detected correctly, but the X server core dumps with no
useful message (to me, anyway). I want to use the native nv driver. Please
see the attached log and configuration file. The files are also at
 in case they are stripped from this mail.

The driver and card worked fine with 6.8.0 and 6.8.1 (and with XFree86 4.x
before that) so I suspect that something has changed with the recent
changes to the nv driver as mentioned in the Release Notes. The problem
began to occur after a routine portupgrade on FreeBSD (which I assume
included that 6.8.2 files).

The machine in question also has Windows 200 installed dual-boot, so
hardware problems can probably be ruled out.

Is there some setting that I have missed  or that I should try? I'd be
grateful for any help. Thanks.
