Re: New 100.14.03 driver? Really new?
100.14.03 was built too early to pick up the `nvidia-settings` locale bug fix, but future builds should. For what it's worth, you can continue to use the binary I posted earlier with this driver. With respect to the GLX_ext_texture_from_pixmap 'black window bug', it's being worked on, but 100.14.03 was not claimed to address this problem.
