Yes please do. This would be great. I would be a willing guinea pig as I don't think nvidia even though they have identified the bug are not going to release a new driver until their pre-scheduled dates (which is typically 4-6 months). Even if they did bring out a update it would probably be marked as beta and linux distributions usually don't include beta Nvidia drivers in their repositories, they tend to wait for official releases.
