Default Re: [amd64/8.2-RELEASE/GTX 295] artefacts and hangers hangers while playing flash vid

I'm now able to pinpoint the problem to the exact driver version when it started:

256.53 was all OK then with 260.19.12 the problem mentioned in the first post started. Another interesting fact:

Unloading the kernel module 'nvidia.ko' after such a hanger from the console after shutting down Xorg:

260.19.12 and higher: MEMORY LEAKS!!!

$ kldunload nvidia
nvidia0: detached
nvidia1: detached
Warning: memory type nvidia leaked memory on destroy (3 allocations, 192 bytes leaked).
256.53: no memory leak

Here is another Kernel Message I only saw so far with 275.09.07
