It may be a card-specific or similar issue?
Possibly? This is a standard old 8600GT with 512M of GDDR3. It has been rock solid with all driver up to the last two months or so. I'm suspecting the new xorg changes that have also caused problem not only with nvidia, but ATI as well.
I am running similar hardware with similar drivers in a dual head (twinview) setup with no issues as described now or ever in the past. I use two 1680x1050 displays connected via DVI cables. Package versions are below but are the standard testing packages. I don't run KDE, just XMonad and xcompmgr.
