Default Re: Ubuntu 10.04 can not logout after installing Nvidia Driver

This sounds like an issue has been reported by many other users (gnome-session and gnome-settings-daemon processes refuse to terminate and use 100% of the CPU); see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=164619 and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=164775

The only real solution at the moment appears to be to use driver version 275.09.07 or older.

A possible workaround is to set __GL_NO_DSO_FINALIZER="1", but that has some downsides (e.g. it causes some programs to segfault).

Some people have also reported success by rebuilding cairo with different configure options.
