Don't hold your breath. My 275 gradually got more stable with driver updates, but after several years still isn't fixed, and there's no indication it ever will be. Some acknowledgement of all these hang/crash bug reports would at least be something. I got no response to the one I emailed, not even an automated 'ticket created' or similar message.
It's strange that nice things like the VDPAU implementation and the HDMI audio documentation are released, while severe problems with basic functionality remain.
