Hi all,

I have been searching the web to try finding more info about this
problem. Seems that there are some reports about similar problems in
different forums (added some info below for those curious) and that it
appeared somewhere between kernel 3.6 and 3.7.  I have tried
unsuccessfully a couple of the proposed patches, no luck.

The good news are that I have also tried sid kernel removing the
nouveau noaccel=1 from boot cmdline, and I am no longer having this
problem for a couple of days with that sid kernel (cross fingers), I
have even re-enabled "use hardware acceleration if possible" in
firefox and things are still working well.

Summarizing, in this jessie box:

linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 (3.2.65-1+deb7u2): No problem found
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 (3.16.7-ckt11-1): Problem  is present
linux-image-4.0.0-2-amd64 (4.0.7-1): No problem found, did not try
with testing 4.0.5-1

So, at least in my box, problem seems not to be a problem with
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau but with the nouveau module in kernel.
