Default [bug report] nvidia-settings crashes, and more

Hi,

I experienced the same behaviour on Fedora 13 before I switched (back) to Archlinux. If I start nvidia-settings and press the PowerMizer tab, the performance levels shows like:

Code:
Performance Level, NV Clock, Memory Clock

0, 170 Mhz, 100 MHz
1, 475 Mhz, 400 MHz
2, 170 Mhz, 100 MHz
So performance level 2 shows the wrong frequencies. If I set "Preferred Mode" to "Prefer Maximum Performance", then they change to the following:

Code:
Performance Level, NV Clock, Memory Clock

0, 170 Mhz, 100 MHz
1, 475 Mhz, 400 MHz
2, 475 Mhz, 400 MHz
That is not entirely correct either, I think that the performance level 1 should have lower frequencies than the maximum (2).

The second bug:

If I click on "Thermal Settings", the application crashes.

Code:
[fackamato@fackamato-pc ~]$ nvidia-settings 
Floating point exception
dmesg shows (I ran nvidia-settings twice):

Code:
nvidia-settings[25943] trap divide error ip:42a5ed sp:7ffff92207f0 error:0 in nvidia-settings[400000+b5000]
nvidia-settings[32603] trap divide error ip:42a5ed sp:7fff048e9610 error:0 in nvidia-settings[400000+b5000]
I've attached the bug report. Quick info:

Code:
