For  my  GTX470 the  nouveau  driver is  "WIP"  at  all sections,  and
3D-acceleration is  a requirement for my  daily work so  i'm forced to
use the proprietary Nvidia-driver :-(

I haven't tried to reboot into Windows, only to Linux.

Seems that it's a really seldom problem (i expected a lot more results
from google).

If i find some time i'll try  the latest 2.6.37 Kernel. For now i stay
on because my LFS-system runs stable (with almost the latest
upstream-versions in userland like Xorg  etc.) and i need it for daily
work :-)
