Xinerama focus freeze problem

I have two cards with 3 monitors and running the nvidia driver (180.29) 
with xorg-server 1.5.3 on FreeBSD 7.1-stable.
With Xinerama enabled after about 100 focus changes between windows on 
two different "monitors" the focus freezes. It seems that mouse position 
doesn't get correctly interpreted, since I have cursor shape changes on 
one monitore where the corresponding window really is on another monitor 
(at approx that position).
The real problem is that also the window manager (xfwm) isn't able to 
switch between windows anymore, so I'm not sure if this is xorg or 
nvidia related.
But when I log in form a remote machine and kill the application which 
holds the focus, the whole X server dies.

Any hints appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
