I don't see anything in the log that shows an error - it just dies. I
don't know what's causing it. As for switching out the driver:
pkg_add -r http://avalon.dragonflybsd.org/packages/i386/DragonFly-3.2/pkgsrc-2012Q3/All/xf86-video-intel-2.7.1nb6.tgz
Would remove the newer driver and add back the old intel video driver.
I'm not 100% sure this will work; pkgsrc might complain about the old
diver having version dependencies that aren't met by the other
If it doesn't help, you can repeat those steps but add this newer
version for 3.4 back in, with a pkg_add -r :
