9755 + 2.6.20 xserver eats all cpu + ram, black screen
I ssh-ed to get this bug report, the command line gets less responsive by the second once X is started, even remotely. same driver works okay under 2.6.19 kernels. Keyboard non-responsive instantly, kill -9ing the X server doesn't seem to help. The monitor goes into power savings mode, which I assume just it sitting in the middle of a mode change without actually completing it. Maybe to allocate memory for a graphics buffer...
kernel 2.6.20-gentoo and 2.6.20-beyond
nvidia driver build 9755
