I had some problems with Xorg and undefined symbols but that was just for 
probing.  Another problem I had was my previous xorg.conf didn't work, I 
needed to provide BusID in my Device section.  

Other then that now everything appears fine.  Desktop Effects are working 
without glitch.  I did have some problems logging in, X/KDE just freezes but 
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and relogin works just fine?

I'm using nvidia-driver-177.80, xorg-7.4 on FreeBSD 7.1 (Nvidia 7600GT x2).

Does you xorg.log say anything useful, have you tried with a new config file 
(Xorg -configure, nvidia-settings)?
