Hi Russ,

I didn't experience the problem myself, yet. But the last xorg update in
testing did some changes related to nouveau, so maybe I'll see something
later on :-)

Can you release a new version of n-k-c? Should I prepare a patch? Test
it? Commit it?

(We may bump the dependency of nvidia-kernel-2.6.* on
nvidia-kernel-common later on.)
