Default Re: >=3G installed crashes X server due to simplistic PCI allocation by kernel

I just want to confirm that I have the same problem.

I am running an ASUS M2A-VM Motherboard with AMD Dual Core 64bit CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce7200 card so I use the 169.09 driver. When I have up to 3GB of RAM everything works fine. Going to 4GB (I also went up to 6GB just to check) put the XServer in an infinite loop (even sax2 so I cannot even install the driver with more than 3GB), as I see from the xorg log:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA X driver has encountered too many errors. Falling
(WW) NVIDIA(0): back to legacy PCI mode.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.

and goes on and on...

Just using VESA works fine. Does anyone know if the NVidia developers are working on this and we can expect a solution soon?
