There were no changes to the XFree86 server sources in NetBSD's "xsrc"
source in that time frame.
Do you use NetBSD's sources or the XFree86 ones? Do you have any patches
e.g. the experimental DRI changes in your sources?
Which version of GCC do you use?

I guess it's something different e.g. the agp(4) driver. Try disabling
this driver - it doesn't give you any advantage with these cards at
the moment anyway - and see if the problem goes away afterwards.
