If this option fixes these issues, I hope the forum moderators will put it finally in their FAQ to use this option in the case of crashes.
Thanks for that - it worked a treat

What I've also noticed, is that the crash doesn't occur if I disable anti-aliasing in nvidia-settings (but that's not really a solution, as I hate the jagged edges in Compiz without it)
