Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 185.18.14-1
Severity: important

185.18.14 is very unstable if MSI is enabled. My computer hang when
executing glxinfo with linux 2.6.30. Linux 2.6.29 worked with glxinfo,
but hang quite frequently during normal operation.

180.44 and serveral other versions works fine with MSI. 185.18.14
seems to work without MSI.
