Thumbs down X crash and system freeze with 295.40

Hi, on Debian amd64 with kernel 3.3.2 and drivers 295.40 and KDE desktop I am experiencing X freezes and/or crashes, leading to system freeze if the computer is left running.

In the log I get only:

NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus.

I also get various segfaults in vlc, virtualbox, to name a few since the upgrade. System freezes happen wether those applications are used or not, so it must be a separate issue.

Computer remains reacheable with ssh for a short time windows, I managed to run nvidia-bug-report during a crash, report attached.

I have been suffering various crashes for the last three releases, bug reports are dismissed and receive no apparent attention, this is very frustrating. NVidia drivers are a pain and a threat to my system, with the support nearly inexistant they are becoming an unbearable pain.

I am seriously considering a change of graphic card for one with proper support, preferably with open drivers... It will be worth every dime to avoid suffering those instability and then having to talk to a wall for support.
