Default Boot failure with 256.35

Last night I upgraded to 256.35 (was running 195.36.15), and during the reboot,
as the kernel was starting up, a few lines flashed by saying something about unknown
symbols in the nvidia kernel module, then the system rebooted itself again, and so on.
Sorry I don't have more details about which symbols were missing, but it didn't stay
on the screen long enough for me to catch.

I reverted to 195.36.15, then upgraded to 195.36.31, both of which have worked fine.
Note that I didn't go looking for 256.35, rather that's what the "driver search" found
for my system when I visited the download page as usual.

I've done the nvidia-SunOS-bug-report.sh thing, but don't see a way to attach
that here -- perhaps someone can let me know where to send it. Note that this
is not an Xorg-startup failure, we never got as far as even seeing a VGA console,
let alone graphics.
