Default 9629: X segfaults on video mode changes

Whenever X tries to change video modes, it segfaults. The following appears at the end of the Xorg.0.log file:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1400x1050"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "800x600_56"

*** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
*** be the reason for the server aborting.

0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x86) [0x80b4ab6]
1: [0xffffe420]
2: [0x81fc1c0]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 4, 0x8000, 0x0000eaac, 0x0000eaac)

Default Re: 9629: X segfaults on video mode changes

I've had exactly the same problem, on an iMac w/ Ubuntu 6.10 64-bit (GeForce 7600GT)

For now I've reverted to a 8xxx driver.

Unfortunately, this is a known problem that should be resolved in a future driver release; for now, please either revert to an older driver release or use `xrandr` to switch to the resolution the game would switch to using the xf86VidMode extension.
