Here is a quick update.  I've tried commenting out all modules in the

I'm still looking for ideas.

I suspected you're using 'nv', because I've had the same problem (GeForce 6 and 7) and updating to a newer version of X fixed it.

If you absolutely want to stay with 5.0.1 you may want to use Xorg from pkgsrc by:
    - setting X11_TYPE=modular in /etc/mk.conf
    - installing the modular-xorg-* packages in pkgsrc/meta-pkgs
    - making sure your system uses the new Xorg (PATH, xorg.conf, ...)

or otherwise just update to netbsd-5 (CVS (source), (binary)) which contains a sufficiently up-to-date version of X.
