Can you try to "bisect" the problem by testing the nvidia-settings
binary from several older driver releases?

The old drivers can be downloaded here:
unpacking and testing works as with the current one.

You should test
* 195.36.31 - just to make sure there is a "good" version from nvidia
* 280.13 was already tested as "bad"
* 275.19 (275.21 up to 280.13 have identical source tarballs, so they
should be all "bad") - if that one is "good" you are done
and thereafter always get a driver from the middle between the newest
"good" and oldest "bad", test this and continue in the remaining half of
versions until you found two versions next to each other where one is
good and the other is bad.

Eventually first have a look at the nvidia forum and check if someone
else is experiencing your problem, too.
