Default Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis

I'm seeing some similar artifacts on two x86 machines running 1.0-9746
on Fedora Core 6 (2.6.19 kernel, xorg 7.1), using two different graphics cards,
an NV30 (Quadro FX 2000, "volterra") and NV43 (GeForce 6600, "map").

Noticed it so far in Maya 8.5's scrolling listboxes: if you scroll very slowly
(presumably in 1-pixel increments), the repainted text+buttons look
normal; but if scrolling at any reasonable speed, the window contents are stretched vertically severalfold, with lines of (I think) background-color
interleaved with the proper stuff. The result is un-viewable.

I'm attaching nvidia-bug-report.log's from both machines. I can't easily
grab a screenshot at the moment (affected machines are in locked offices),
will try to provide that Monday unless I can do a remote desktop trick (hmm, xvnc?).

I am not seeing the horrible widespread artifacts reported by the original
poster, though that could be because I'm running a simpler window manager
(fvwm2).

The scroll-repaint garbling doesn't occur if I `Option "RenderAccel" "false"',
but of course everything's very slow then.

I'm *not* noticing this problem on my Fedora Core 5 x86 laptop
(xorg 7.0, GeForce FX 5200 Go) which also uses 1.0-9746.
