This has been happening since NetBSD 6.0 BETA 1 (or possibly earlier; i can't
remember) and pkgsrc-2011Q4 i believe. I thought it was one of those freak bugs
that would just be fixed quickly, but with packages built from pkgsrc-2012Q2
(including modular-xorg-server), it is still present. Basically, any screensaver
that has the visual set to GL will freeze after running for a short time (less
than a minute). This doesn't seem to happen with any other visual.
Set Visual to GL in xscreensaver-demo or by editing whatever program's line in
.xscreensaver. Run it for a few seconds and experience the freeze.
        I have no idea. There aren't any useful messages in Xorg.log nor in
