I haven't restarted yet so after the restart it might not work anymore !
There must be something wrong in your system quite frankly, other than the driver issue.

I do get a floating point exception in some cases in ; but nowhere as frequently as what you're stating
glxgears never crashes for example.
Same for nvidia-settings.

if it did you would have everyone jumping back and forth.. This isn't the case

I get floating point exception when using libvisual in MythTV ; the bug is indeed in the nvidia libraries...

BTW, Segmentation Fault is not caused by a floating point exception ; and when it crashes it would give a different error.

You may see a genuine error in the nvidia libraries ; but based on your last post I think what you're experiencing is mainly a problem on your side ; a faulty RAM maybe?

That's a pity, because there is definitely an issue in the nvidia libraries, but you're clouding it with another problem which means nvidia people are likely going to discard it
