Default 295.40 breaks vbiosd

Installation of NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-295.40.run on a Toshiba Qosmio with GeForce GT 540M and Solaris 11 11/11 causes vbiosd to fail.

$ svcs -x
svc:/system/vbiosd:default (BIOS call emulation)
State: maintenance since Sat Apr 14 14:56:42 2012
Reason: Start method exited with $SMF_EXIT_ERR_CONFIG.
See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-KS
See: vbiosd(1M)
See: /var/svc/log/system-vbiosd:default.log
Impact: This service is not running.
$ tail /var/svc/log/system-vbiosd:default.log
[ Apr 12 19:39:24 Leaving maintenance because clear requested. ]
[ Apr 12 19:39:24 Enabled. ]

Other than this, the driver seems to work. Is this a serious problem? Thanks.
