Exclamation 260.19.36 - font display corrupted after Flash fullscreen

On my system (kernel 2.6.37.1 x86_64, Fedora 14, Intel CoreDuo, GeForce 9800 GT, KDE 4.6, flash-plugin-10.2.152.27) with Nvidia drivers 260.19.36 I get fonts corrupted and display artefacts after running Adobe Flash content in a browser (Firefox 3.6.13) fullscreen. The fonts appear 'ghosted' in places, and with some parts invisible.
Reverting to 260.19.29 fixes the problem.
Log enclosed.

Update: Now managed to reproduce this with 260.19.29 as well.. Seems to happen less frequently with this version, but that may just be a coincidence. Will test on a non-Nvidia system, to see if the problem might be with Flash..
Update 2: Tested on a non-Nvidia system with similar operating system environment, and Flash fullscreen works OK..

From your log, shortly after the last module insertion:

Feb 18 11:00:13 rglinux kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 53, CMDre 00000003 000000c0 b0ef1025 00000007 00000000

Does that match with when you used Flash fullscreen and started getting the symptoms?

Not sure of the specific time, but I had just installed the 260.19.36 drivers, started KDE, and then attempted Flash fullscreen, then got the symptoms and ran the nvidia-bug-report.sh script.

Tried the same test with beta version 270.26, and Flash fullscreen died after approximately 4 seconds of playback, but there was _no_ font/display corruption.

I can confirm this issue on gts 450.
I also get Xid error. Is this hardware fault?

Do you confirm the text corruption issue following the Xid error, or just the Xid error?

I was playing around now, but cannot reproduce the problem reliably.
But I've managed to lock X server while trying to reproduce the problem by
switching video from fullscreen to windowed mode and back.

Some xid appeared, however all screen was stuck on white.
I can only assume that corruption happens after those xids, but will try
to catch it again.
