Alas I had no chance yet to upgrade: a lot of work and the need for a stable
machine. Moreover I've noticed recently that further upgrades will need
upgrading some core packages other than apparently stable libc6.
To be honest, according to what I've read about Nvidia drivers, I don't
really expect the bug to really be fixed soon. Anyway, count on me to report
results when I upgrade.
