I had the problem; if I remember well, I solved it by removing all
ubuntu nvidia packages and installing the nvidia drivers from the newest
version from the nvidia download page.
I also have some stability problems which seem to be much better if I
do not use OpenGL (for example, shutting down does not work as well as
before; with OpenGL when choosing "Shut down" always the menues
disappear but the background then stays forever). But I do not use the
system very much and I have not collected any useful data.
