Does this problem still occur using the final Red Hat Linux 9 release?
If so, can you report it upstream to http://bugs.xfree86.org so the "nv"
driver maintainer can investigate it, as there's not really much I can do
about Nvidia 'nv' driver bugs since I don't have the hardware nor the
specifications, nor any knowledge of operation of their hardware.  All
I can really do, is wait until our next release and say "does it work
now", which isn't too helpful.  It's best for 'nv' bug reports to go
upstream as much as possible.

If the problem does still exist though, and you do file it upstream,
please add a URL here to the upstream bug report so I can track it
there, and add any patches that might come up.

TIA Leon
