Yowza. Oops. I just noticed that misread your question 'Are you sure
its nvidia that needs a fix?' as 'Are you sure that its not nvidia that
needs a fix?' Don't know why my mind put that 'not' in there.
Anyhow, I will now quietly take a step into the background and resolve
not to respond to threads that know next to nothing about (i.e.: nVidia
binary-only drivers, in this case). :-/
BTW: I'm as annoyed as you are at the suggestion to avoid updates due to
proprietary binary-only bits.
