While I applaud your willingness to subsidize a replacement card, I do
hope the developer does contact Nvidia about a warranty replacement
and that he mentions VDPAU in the claim. Better to get every issue
(software and, possibly, hardware) identified and fixed now, when only
a tiny tiny number of Linux users are using it, than to have in six
months "Nvidia + Linux = Broken video cards" burned into the
collective consciousness.
