Package: xserver-xorg-video-nv
Version: 1:1.2.0-3
Severity: critical
Justification: causes serious data loss


this bug might be related to bug #394803, however it is much more serious. 

Since I have upgraded to my new Asus mainboard, I'm in trouble with
the xorg nv driver (The nvidia binary driver works better, but for the
known security flaws I decided not to use it.)

When running the nv driver, I quite often find the machine completely
dead at the morning (the machine runs permanently), it then has
crashed at night and requires pressing the reset button. Strangely,
this never happens at daytime, although I am longer away for business
than in bed. I did not find any precise cause yet, so it was not even
clear what part of the system is the problem. 

However, about bug #394803 (vanishing mouse pointer) I found, that the
mouse pointer problem is gone when I do 

  xset s noblank

(Unfortunately, screen power saving is gone as well...)

As far as I can see right now, the crash problem is gone also, when
I do that. But when I run X without entering this command (I yesterday
restarted for other reasons), the machine crashes again. So there is most
probably a problem between the nv driver and this particular hardware
