Default Re: Xorg eating CPU after installation of nVidia driver

| and so on...
| John Martin hinted there is a known bug polling a resource that is being investigated, is that it?

Looks similar, although the one I'm currently investigating requires OpenGL
double buffer sync to be enabled. After it is enabled, all subsequent instances
of the Xorg server will consume a CPU from pollsys() wakeups until the system
is rebooted.

I've only had one report of Xorg consuming a CPU from pollsys() wakeups
without having to start an OpenGL app with synchronized buffer flips.
This was on a GeForce 4 MX 440, but I have not yet been able to reproduce
it on any of my systems.
