Default Re: 173.14.30 Fix needed pronto

173.14.30 is less than three weeks old, I have to assume that all testing of unity on NV35 and earlier occurred on 173.14.28 prior to that date. That bug is two days after the release of 174.14.30.

As I understand it 173.14.28 is a release to make the driver compatible with Xorg 1.9 and 173.14.30 similarly for Xorg 1.10?

It's only bleeding edge distro's like Ubuntu that use bleeding edge X servers. There's no point releasing an update to make the driver compatible with Natty if the new driver breaks Natty in the process. No?
No. Ubuntu 11.04 users running Unity are not the only people using X.Org xserver 1.10.

So far, I have nothing to go on other than, "Unity doesn't work." There's no indication that anything actually changed in the driver between 173.14.28 and 173.14.30 to cause that behavior, and no explanation of what Unity is trying to do that goes wrong.
