I checked some of those files (dmesg, Xorg.log) and couldn't fine anything.
I'll try again and will check the other files you mention

Freeze is... freeze :P
Now, seriously, the computer stops responding. I'm not able to switch between
VT nor to ping nor login to the machine via my cell phone. If I'm playing
sound the machine gets in kind of a loop with the last sound it played
repeating again and again.
I usually test the stability with the flash player on youtube because it's the
*fastest* way to make the computer freeze. With the latest RC it freezes in
about a minute of playing video as well as in the bisects I've been trying to
do. That doesn't happen with the 2.11 release.
Could it be a problem of the compiler? I recently upgraded to GCC 4.5 and
maybe the driver from the repos is compiled against the old 4.4? I'll give it
I'll report back when I'm done
