Default 295.20 + Heroes Of Newerth, GeForce 8800 GT lockups

Running the game works fine first, but then suddenly I get colored boxes all over the screen. Next thing I know game stops, X doesn't get any input from keyboard. When SSHing to computer I see NVRM Xid -messages in dmesg and Xorg has gone [mi] EQ overflowing.. Won't happen in any other game I play and judging from the HoN console log it was doing something related to shaders. Killing things doesn't work, only thing I can do is reboot. Sometimes even that doesn't work as intended and have to force computer down.

It's driving me crazy since this occurs usually quite randomly (though found a surefire way to cause it by increasing the graphics settings) and I can never know if it'll crash or not.

Downgrading to 290.10 doesn't actually help with the problem.. took a while longer before the crash, but it still happened.

Running ArchLinux with kernel 3.2.6, Xorg 1.11.4

Do you have any Logitech USB devices?

None Logitech's. Mouse is made by Microsoft, no other USB devices plugged in.

Took a while to reproduce the problem once again and made nvidia bug report.

Start the computer, start heroes of newerth, join a game, play 5-20 minutes -> crash. Sometimes it happens in seconds after starting the game.

Occasionaly if I'm fast enough I can kill HoN and the EQ overflow doesn't happen, so it is something that is going on between the game and nvidia driver.
