Default nvidia drivers still conflict with vm

The last two Nvidia driver updates have broken KVM. I have to drop back to 256.53 to be able to run my vm's. The vm's start to boot but don't get very far before they quit. This affects all the vms, Linux and Windows.

It's enough of a pain to reinstall the driver with each kernel update, but this is too much. The machine I have is an AMD -- an Athlon 64 with an nVidia Quadro FX 580. Maybe this doesn't affect Intel based hardware and is low priority.

This is a Centos 5.5 box, kernel 2.6.18-194.17.4.el5. When I first bought the machine, the distribution's nv driver didn't do well with two monitors, so I've been using the nVidia driver.
