Thats exactly what I get with my 10.04 install with the 260.19 drivers
(both of them)
on my 512MB 9500GT.
But if i downgrade (as stated before) then it works perfectly. Note
that I was using
the 256 drivers without problem until x-swat updated to the 260 and it all
turned to custard, hence the downgrade to the 195 driver from the 10.04
