Default Neverwinter Nights 1 - Framerate Drop When Robes or Cloaks in View

The title sums the problem up pretty well. My computer goes from 200+ frames per second to ~16 whenever a robe, cloak, or bow (the bowstring) is in view. It's apparently been a known issue ( http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?s...=188517&st=460 ) , and it's been solved with driver version 280.19 and 280.26 which are unfortunately Windows-only at the moment.

It was suggested over there that I ask here about potential update schedules. Is there any way to know when Linux might get one of these newer driver versions?

Similar issues with World of Tanks in wine as well. When looking at the ground I get 50+ FPS with 3 GTX 480 in SLI, SFR mode. When looking at dense brush and trees in-game, FPS drop to about 10-20. Thanks Nvidia dev team.

I tried nwn again with 290.10 on my GTX 460 and the problem seems to be fixed now.
I did no extensive tests, but at least a save game where the problem was immediately noticeable shows a smooth frame rate now.
