I retried this with the latest 64-bit 285.05.09 Nvidia driver and other latest packages from the xorg-edgers PPA, but got the same driver problem. I've attached the later backtraces, which show the same pattern of two places, both through a common code path (0x00007f07e90f2939 in this case):

1...

#1 0x00007f07e90f2939 in ?? () from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xorg/extra-modules/nvidia_drv.so

Fixing this won't get around the blank screen problem, but would certainly help me to test different configurations without having to reboot the laptop every time.
