After various software upgrades (including nvidia drivers), I've run into the following issue: right after logging in, after a few seconds I get screen corruption, see:
and, depending if I'm fast enough or not, I either manage to switch to ctrl-alt-f1 and stop X, or the system freezes (nothing works except a hard reset after that).
Last working version was 180.60, which doesn't have this problem. Anything after 180.60 causes this problem.
