Default Re: 180.* graphical corruption and freezes system

Well, I seem to have found a workaround for my system. I have 2x2Gb memory modules which were installed in dual channel mode. When I removed one stick of memory, everything worked fine. So then I wanted to see if it was the actual amount of memory or just the fact that it was running in single channel with one stick. So I reinstalled the second module in a single channel configuration, and now everything works fine. No more freezes or Xid errors. Somehow, running 4gb of RAM in dual channel mode on a 32bit kernel was causing the problem. I'm happy that it works now, but I'm still not happy that I have to run single channel mode. I'm not sure if this is an nvidia problem or a kernel problem or an X server problem, but I really hope it gets fixed soon.
