Default Linux Crash: wfbFillRegionSolid, wfbPaintWindow, nvidia_drv.so

Kubuntu Hardy, Compiz Fusion, NVIDIA 173.14.09, GeForce 8400M

I was running Compiz and testing a presentation in KPresenter. Had been doing it for a few hours and had no problems. Suddenly, after I clicked on the "End of presentation" slide in KPresenter's full-screen slide-show mode, X crashed. The log showed this:

Code:
Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x7e) [0x80c780e]

I see the same error when I try to resume from suspend if compiz is enabled.
Suspend/resume works if I use metacity.

Really annoying. Does someone know cause or a workaround?

It seems that nvidia ships it's own version of the library. I have replaced xorg version with the one provided by nvidia and resume seems to work fine.

Hi,

any improvements besides that ?

I mean is the desktop working better now (2D) or is there less problems with firefox scrollings, etc. ?

many thanks in advance
