Dear maintainers, 

please apologize, if my report is not exactly enough, but I cannot confirm,
which is the main package for this behaviour.


When I start the application tvbrowser (which is a java based application),
the screen crashes and KDE hangs up (flickering monitor, freeze and so on).
This behaviour happens ONLY with the combination of nvidia-module/nvidia-glx
version 185.18xxx + tvbrowser. NO other application causes this trouble.

The combination of nvdiia-glx in version 180.xxx + tvbrowser works

This is really weired, as the application tvbrowser is not very special. 

I examined the logfiles, but there was no unusual to find. Strange is too,
that this crash is not always, just randomly.

It has nothing to do with plasma (the crash appeared in XFCE, too).

Sorry, I cannot give more information, but maybe someone else discoverd the
sane crash and maybe he or she found out more.

So, again, please apologize I cannot confirmm to which package (X11, nvidia-*
or tvbrowser) I should send it.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Hans-J. Ullrich
