Alright. Could you please keep me, and others with this problem, informed of any changes to the situation. Thanks for your assistance, and I apologise again for my hostility.
It's an impressive coincidence that an ATI chipset causes the Nvidia driver to fail, considering ATI & Nvidia are rival companies.
Perhaps ATI/Nvidia are each trying to drive users away from the other group's products, hence the shelving of this bug.
