Yes, and I was running testing until fairly recently myself, so it's not 
likely any difference there.

Not by me, I'm afraid.  I'm miles (or kilometers) away from being an expert on 
any of this stuff, and I can't get the problem to manifest here.  About all I 
can do is make wild guesses.  :)

I think if it were me, knowing somebody else didn't have the problem, I'd 
start by trying the open source NVIDIA driver, just to see if that made a 

Hrm.  Come to think of it, I have a RIVA 128 in one of my X terminals.  I 
could try whatever Debian's latest available closed-source NVIDIA driver is 
on there and see if I can make this happen.  A bit later.  We're having a 
hellacious thunder storm at the moment, and that box is offline.

You can say that again, but it's easier than it used to be.  If you use Debian 
kernels anyway.  The last time I fooled with it, I just grabbed 
nvidia-module-some-flummy from Debian.  I'm not actually using it at the 
moment though.
