Default Re: 190.40 on Dell M1730 - SLI hangs


Enabling SLI with 190.40 on my stock Ubuntu 9.04(with all updates) x64 hangs as per all the 185.x and 190.x drivers above.

Machine hangs hard; screen goes black (ie off) where I would usually see the nvidia logo come up when x starts. Cannot switch to consoles/ttys.

Xorg.0.log.old extract after a reboot disabling SLI shows last few lines:
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "SLI" "On"
(**) Oct 21 10:27:55 NVIDIA(0): Enabling RENDER acceleration
(**) Oct 21 10:27:55 NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA SLI auto-select rendering option.
(II) Oct 21 10:27:55 NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) Oct 21 10:27:55 NVIDIA(0):     enabled.
And that's where I guess it hangs...
