SubjectRe: 2.6.2 Kernel Badness with 1.0-5336 NVIDIA driver
Date
Indeed it shows up on my /var/log/messages* on two other occasions without 
hanging the system then. _But_ I had 5328 then. At least this badness shows
up through 5328 and 5336, if that could provide a pointer to somebody (NVIDIA
are you listening?)...
