Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 185.18.31-1
Severity: grave

After upgrading to the 185.18.31 packages from 185.18.14, X caused a kernel
panic with a NULL pointer dereference.  This seems to be the same problem
discussed here:


Downgrading to the earlier version is suggested as fixing the issue, and does
for me, but I figure that others might want to know about this beforehand.
