I've reported this bug at the Red Hat bugzilla for the issue I face in Fedora 11.

I've given the details at the link:

Some kernel messages I see are:
nouveau: nouveau_fifo_free: freeing fifo 1
nouveau: Failed to idle channel 1. Prepare for strangeness..
nouveau: PFIFO_DMA_PUSHER - Ch 1
nouveau: nouveau_fifo_free: freeing fifo 0
nouveau: PFIFO_DMA_PUSHER - Ch 1

The Xorg.0.log files are attached in the bugzilla link mentioned above.

driver version: xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.12-36.20090514git9656762.fc11.x86_64

Bug in RedHat's bugzilla is closed as fixed, so I'm closing this one too.
