Anyway, I vaguely remember that the problem started when version 280.13 was transitioned to 280.13.really.275.28-1, although I'm not sure. I tried installing the 285 version from experimental, but it doesen't work for me (it gets stuck trying to start the X server).

What about current kernel (3.2) and driver (295.20 in unstable, 290.10
in testing, 275.37 in squeeze-backports)?


PS: If I receive no further information about this problem, I'll close
this bug report in about 4 weeks.
