Default Changing Resolution: Causes Crash

I am on 1.0.9629. Whenever a game or whatnot tries to start up and change the resolution, from my native 1440x900, my X.org crashes. Though, if I change it with say, nvidia-settings, it works fine. I have to reboot because it crashes so badly.

I didn't have this issue on 1.0.9626.

If you need any relevant information, just ask, but remember, as soon as I launch the app I have to reboot.

Code:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "nvidia-auto-select"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "640x480"

Backtrace:
0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x71) [0x47ff31]
1: /lib/libc.so.6 [0x2b4f4a7a6580]
2: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so(_nv001261X+0x4d) [0x2b4f4bc361cd]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
Here is my bug report, sorry that I didn't use verbose logging, can post on request -- I don't feel like rebooting at this moment.

This is a known bug in 1.0-9629 (specific to mode changes when using a DFP) and will be resolved in a future driver release. The current workaround is to downgrade to 1.0-9626 or 1.0-8776.

Thanks,
Lonni

Can you tell me where to download 1.0-9626? On the website I see only the broken version 1.0-9629. Thanks.
