I use the nvidia installer to overwrite the package files, but I'm not
going to recomend this to anyone else as it can be messy when the
packages start getting updated.

But, I will say that I also saw the long pauses going into and out of
the guide, and for me this solved by adding

	Option	"UseEvents"	"0"

to the Device section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
