Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

I am disappointed to notice that the resolution problem with the Dell notebooks has not been solved yet. I still get the garbled stuff to the right and the cloned top of my screen to the bottom. It all goes away when using the now traditional change in os-registry.c from NVreg_Mobile = ~0 to NVreg_Mobile = 0. NOTICE that this is DIFFERENT from what is recommended in the README file, as the recommended fix does not work.
One more problem has been added, for the first time in 3 years, my machine came to a complete lock after installing new NVIDIA drivers. Meanwhile, I am back to 6229.
And, as expected, power management is still broken.

I read through the 8 pages of this thread and some more without finding any solution to these.

The most amazing feature is the total silence of NVIDIA developers about this issue... A real bummer.

FYI: I tried all combinations of settings with and without editing os-registry.c
