I will certainly try this out. Which backports kernel have you
upgraded to? And how does that fare as far as nVidia drivers go
(assuming you haven't got the Intel integrated option, of course)? I'm
using the proprietary driver (*spits*), but have been thinking of
switching to the Nouveau ones provided they can drive dual monitors
decently. I'm assuming that the proprietary ones in the stable repos
are not capable of working with the backports kernel?

I will definitely look into this over the next couple of days. I'd
love to try the patching etc reasonably soon, I just can't afford the
risk of having the machine go down on me just at the moment.

Again, thanks for your help. I will look into this and report back.
