Default Re: Desktop Video corruption & VDPAU playback freeze w/180.44 and 185.19 on 8400GS

I'd like to confirm that I did see the very same issues (although desktop image corruption was much worse), but cannot reproduce them at present, neither on a Core2, an Athlon XP or a Katmai.
A possible fix for the corruption problem was the removal/change of other PCI cards.
Driver version may not be the cause, because I just tested with 180.37 (and regularly use newer versions).
Attached are nvidia-bug-report.log files from both 180.44 and 185.19 occurrences of the problem on this same PC.
Please read and post a full bug report here for the pre-emption problem.
