Default Re: Xorg server crash in nvidia 295.20.

I tried for the past two days the following configuration

- gentoo-kernel 3.2.14/3.4.0
- xorg-server 1.12.2
- nvidia-drivers 302.17

and i got:

- no text console on any tty, with the "nomodeset" option in kernel line I could switch to console a couple of times then the only thing I got was a black screen
- 3 X11 crashes
- 1 system freeze, with kernel still responsive, I could reboot with ALT+Stamp+B
- 1 hard freeze, rebooted manually.

so I reverted back to:
- gentoo-kernel 3.2.14
- xorg-server 1.11.4
- nvidia-drivers 290.10

For me the 290.10 remains the last stable release.
My system is a 32bit Gentoo on Intel Corei5 with an ASUS NVIDIA GTS 250 (01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] (rev a2))
