Default Random X server crashes

Hi,
Occasionally (while using google chrome) my X server crashes completely
and takes me back to the tty login. Examining the journal entries reveals
the following highlighted in red:

Sep 23 17:03:33 myarchbox kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:05.0: fail
ttm_validate
Sep 23 17:03:34 myarchbox kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:05.0: validate
vram_list
Sep 23 17:03:34 myarchbox kernel: [drm] nouveau 0000:00:05.0: validate: -12

I am using the nouveau driver for my Nvidia graphics card. The problem is
difficult to reproduce as it happens quite randomly - for instance I might
be opening some particular website and it will crash. If I insist on
opening the same website again it might crash a second time but it will
work the third time or so. Is this a universal experience of using nouveau
on Nvidia cards or is it something that is only afflicting my computer?

Thanks.
