Default Re: Desktop freeze with 270.x drivers, KDE 4 and Compiz

Same here:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS] (rev a1)

KDE 4.6.2, 64 Bit, Gentoo Linux 2.6.38, Xorg 1.9

But only after upgrading to 270.41.03, there have been no problems with 260.19.44.

After logging in, I see KDE start animation and just the moment KWin would start, screen updates freeze. The system is running, I can move the mouse cursor and it even turns into an input field cursor when hovering areas where an input field would be - so essentially the windows are there. The driver just stopped drawing screen updates. Disabling compositing (Ctrl+Alt+F12) immediatly reveals the running desktop, reenabling compositing draws the desktop once sometimes (I see the shadow and translucent effects) but then freezes. System remains running, however. No errors in Xorg log.
