Default Re: Spontaneous (?) lock-up on on recent driver on GF 8800 GT

Some extra info:
- with my phone I was still able to login during a lockup
- music kept on playing during lockup
- after logging in, top showed me that Xorg was using 100% CPU time. Killing the process with SIGKILL was the trick to recover without Alt-SysRq trickery

My conclusion (as far as I can tell with my very limited knowledge on the details): it's some infinite loop in X/driver, not in the kernel part....
