I upgraded to the 9746 (apparently i had 9631, not 9629) and get different results!
Now, when I ctrl-alt-Fx to another screen, all I get is a black screen. It is no longer a full system lock up. This is a step in the right direction. I can type, even though i can't see what I'm typing. Because of this, I was able to run the nvidia-bug-report.sh in the console that wasn't working.
So, here it is.
