Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 185.18.31-2
Severity: normal

After upgrading to 185.18.31, I get a black screen and my laptop hangs. This
seems to have been reported against the Ubuntu package already, see 

According to this bug report the 185.18.31 driver release is known to be
broken for some mobile GPUs and should be replaced by the 185.18.36 driver.

This is a Thinkpad T61 with the Quadro NVS 140M graphics card.
