Default Re: Java apps (JDownloader) and nvidia 180.* AND 185.* problems

Same here for tvbrowser (reported here). Works fine after downgrading to 180.44, so this is definitively a nvidia issue.

Altough I couldn't read it proper due to a corrupted window, the crash seems to leave some kind of trace in dmesg.

Hello,

it still happens here. Increasing the memory reduced the problem, but it is still present. Ten minutes ago, my computer totally crashed after starting jdownloader.

I managed to reproduce this problem and tracked it down to a pair of bugs, one in the X server, and one in one of the X clients involved (probably KDE4's panel program).

This rogue X client sends an invalid XGetImage request, attempting to read outside the bounds of a pixmap. This isn't supposed to be allowed by the X server, but due to Bugzilla #22804, is. The server then sends this invalid request to the driver, which passes it on to the hardware, which triggers an error.

I'll add a workaround to the driver, but both the X server and the broken X client should still be fixed.
