Yes, I suspect my nVidia driver is seriously screwed, but it's  
working most of the time for me so I'm leaving it alone. Last time I  
played with it I was out of a frontend for a week. I had a hell of a  
time getting it to work on the machine I just set up as well. I  
finally got it to not crash so I left that one alone, too. I'm too  
scared to mess with it. Their drivers seem exceptionally unstable.
