nVidia have made changes to the driver that negate the effects of a
change in the kernel.

So, it appears to be 'six of one, half a dozen of the other'.  That
said, maybe nVidia should have kept a closer eye on kernel changes to
mitigate this problem.

It's strange also that nobody using sid /seems/ to have been affected by
the problem.  Or maybe they were, knew the workaround and forgot to
report the bug.  Who knows?....
