Is that driver as mature as the Xorg nv driver?  (I don't really care
about 3d stuff, so the Xorg driver is feature full enoug.)

In the meantime I've downgraded to xorg-server from 4 Sep (and device
packages from even earlier).

Had I thought about it I would have tried removing the nv package and
let X run with vesa instead.  I'll have to get some work done first
thought, maybe I have time to try it later today or tomorrow.
