Default Resolution change at 169.09 still crashes inevitably


Since AaronP asked for it, here's my take:
Unfortunately I have to second Miroslav II: Also the new version (169.09) crashes X inevitably at change of a resolution.

What I wonder: Would there be an earlier version of the driver that supports my NVIDIA GPU GeForce 7050 PV, and is known to not crash?
Why do I need to change resolution? For the TV-out. When it is connected, in order to activate it, I need to click 'Apply', and that will kill the X session.

Uwe

P.S.: I had to remove several lines of 'loadable objects', because the report was longer than the allowed maximal size.
Maybe someone can increase the limit?

Just to note: 100.14.19 is last working version of the driver which doesn't crash X server while changing resolution with Ctrl-Alt +/-.
Some programs that I use do it automatically when they go in full screen mode.

Bug is repeatable every time.

Miroslav, thanks. This is what I wanted to know; therefore I could check and see that my 7050 is supported, download and install (how much easier for Solaris than for Linux!!).
Finally, I can 'detect' and activate/deactivate the TV-out from the NVIDIA-applet without X crashing.

Yessir, the bug is reproducible 100% here, on two different machines and two different NVIDIA-chips.

[makes me wonder, why NVIDIA seems to not do anything about this, and SUN keeps shipping all nv-s with the corrupt drivers?]
