I also suspect the nvidia drivers.
In my case however stability has increased with the 41.91 version. X
froze once since upgrading the driver in contrast to multiple times per
week with 31.23...
But after reviewing the dispatch loop and the smart scheduling code of
the X Server I cannot rule out a general bug in the X Server code which
is only triggered by the nvidia drivers... (On the other hand I don't
know much about X, so I might as well be completely wrong).
In any case I'm way out of my league here and since stability is quite
OK now I also don't intend to pursue this further...
