Ive gotten the same message in my logs since Dec 30th. The very same day
I switched to Mandrake 8.1, with NVIDIAs latest drivers (2313) on a ASUS
Geforce 3 card. (Athlon 1.2GHz tbird, 512 MB RAM, ASUS A7V133 mobo with
raid chip).

I dont get a lockup though.

Ive had that message at the console a few times when X isnt running.
Doesnt seem to occur when X is running though.
