Unhappy [260.19.12 regression] Tool Paletter demo from gtk-demo crashes X server (F14 i686)

I need confirmation from other people, so if you can test, please, report your results here.

With NVIDIA drivers 260.19.12 "Tool Paletter" demo from gtk-demo crashes X server (Fedora 14 i686), when you try to click "Stock Icons (A-F)" button.

Code:
Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X (xorg_backtrace+0x39) [0x80c6ea1]
1: /usr/bin/X (0x8048000+0x4dbb7) [0x8095bb7]
2: (vdso) (__kernel_rt_sigreturn+0x0) [0xb783340c]
3: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so (0xb5315000+0x427068) [0xb573c068]
Segmentation fault at address 0x2

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting


Please consult the Fedora Project support
         at http://wiki.x.org
 for help.
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
I have 8800GT board.

Am I the only person who has this crash?

Nope. I see the crash, too. Same driver version and same OS and CPU arch.

That was fun... closing about 10 windows and 1 running VM.

Yay, no crash here! (Fedora 14 x86_64, NVIDIA driver 260.19.21)

What GTK theme do you guys use?

No crash with 260.19.21 on Fedora 14 with all the latest updates running on a 2.60 P4 and a (sadly not overclocked) 7600 GS.

There were some regressions fixed between 260.19.12 and 260.19.21 that fixed some GL application crashes.

Now if we could get overclocking back, things would work well. 2D performance seems to be slightly improved (although I've not done the statistically valid test) over 256.53, but without overclocking the 260.19.21 driver and a 7600 GS card performs about the same as a 5600 LE using glxgears.

260.19.21 is about 30% slower than 177.82 on the 7600 GS. The comparison is probably not really fair, since the 177.82 driver was run on an earlier version of the X server. However, it appears that there still is a huge GL performance regression.

Upgrading to 260.19.21 fixed it.

OK, let's hope it's fixed in 260.19.21.

It is fixed.
