180.44/kde4/effects/Xid: same problem as before
 
1 Attachment(s)
Whie I've seen some behaviour changes with 180.44 release of nvidia drivers, the most important (and showstopper problem) is still there. Basically, it's impossible to turn on "effects" on kwin. After some moments X freezes with high CPU load (you can trigger this bug by grabbing the lower dx corner of a window and quickly moving around it as you would do to resize the window).
dmesg shows this:
NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 0000024c 00000359 00000100

Interesting enough, with 2.6.29.1 kernel adds some more informations:
IRQ 20/nvidia: IRQF_DISABLED is not guaranteed on shared IRQs

This sound weird, and I've often noticed bad behaviour of usb attached devices (keyboard, usb keys, etc...) with nvidia driver active. Maybe some IRQ problems?

I've also a regression: kde 4 taskbar shows artifacts over and around the task tabs. No harm, just annoyng.

Bug report attached as usual.

I've been using KDE4 with kwin effects without any problems for months now. Currently the 180.44 seems to be working very well, even the glxgears FPS ratings are back to what they use to were in 177.80. I also upgraded to KDE4.2.2 and my kernel is 2.6.27.19-3.2. Hope you'll find a solution soon.
