Default Floating point exception with > 180.29

I'm running Gentoo on x86 and with recent NVIDIA driver versions I started to experience SIGFPE with some apps. For example:

$ mplayer
Floating point exception
$ amarok
Floating point exception
$ firefox
Floating point exception

This bug started in 180.35 and still present in 180.37 and 185.13. Downgrading to 180.29 resolves this problem. The culprit is libGL.so. Replacing it with version 180.29 also solves this problem.

Switching to xorg-x11 opengl implementation removes the problem too (as NVIDIA libGL.so is no longer used in this case)

I tried rebuilding all apps that have opengl use-flag, but that didn't help.
