xorg configuration file
Probably not only in KDE, however I have no means to check.
The screen freezes for a moment, when truned on DRI in KDE 4.3.3 -> systemsettings -> desktop -> advanced. If the DRI is turned of, there are no such dramatic hangs, but sometimes (with the same error in Xorg.log) there are shorter. Anyway, it's very hard to work with these freezes.
The Xorg.log indicates:
[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.

The above entry is being put every time the freeze occurs.
I saw the similar problem but I wasn't able to found any related to nvidia.

DRI setting in KDE (screenshot)
Try disabling UseEvents in xorg.conf. It's known to be broken on GeForce 8 and up right now.
I'll try and post the results here as soon as I can, but the reason for adding this was:
By "right now" you mean this is a known bug and it's going to be fixed?
It's a known bug and I do hope to fix it someday, but I can't promise any particular time frame since it's considered a low priority.
I've switched off UseEvents, and you cannot imagine how fast it's now working. :-)
Just one question about that UseEvents bug, speaking of earlier, is it posted somewhere, so I can track its status?
We don't really have a public bug tracker, so you can consider this it. I can't promise that I'll remember to update this if UseEvents is ever fixed. Just watch the release notes; I'll try to make sure there's a release highlight if it ever changes.
