Hm, I have seen recently random total freezes of that sort
(everything is dead, including a network, and no traces of anything
anywhere) while running xscreensaver-gl* pieces on Fedora 11 desktop
machine but with radeon graphics driver.  So maybe this is some
nasty interaction between OpenGL and recent fc11 kernels instead of
an intel driver fault?

Turning off specific xscreensaver-gl executables (sometimes one sees
leftover image fragments on a screen indicating an apparent
offender) was of no help.
