Excellent. That's almost too easy, but it seems to have done the trick.

Clearly I don't need the intel_agp, and that seems like the most likely
culprit for the symptom I'm seeing.

Does the agpgart module or any of the others you mentioned provide any
advantages for a system with an nVidia card (GeForce 7300)? Does it
interact with or mutually exclude the nVidia proprietary driver (which
I'm not yet running, but did install during pre-release testind and
will probably install again at some point)?

I'll file one.

I've done it, but my understanding is that SuSE kernels are
significantly patched w.r.t. the stock Linux kernels.
