I use NVidia Drivers about one and a half years now and it's ever the same. 3D acceleration works great (congratulations and thx :-)), but ....
I haven't recognized problem 1 yet, but problem 2 is more than annoying. I know several people with different Graphic Chips having this trouble, so they don't use NVidias driver. I stopped using too because this and only try if the problem is fixed with new drivers. I'll start trying the 4363 now with the new installer and hope strongly, that NVidia will express something about the problems.
We can't suggest NVidia Graphic Cards to customers, until this should be fixed.
