Four days ago I emailed a problem report to
freebsd-gfx-bugs at I haven't heard a peep back. The NVIDIA
support site is structured about like this:

- If your NVIDIA card shipped with the computer direct from the OEM
manufacturer, it's not our problem. Contact [Dell,HP,Compaq,etc] for
- If your NVIDIA card was purchased retail, it's not our problem.
Contact the card manufacturer [Gigabyte,MSI,etc.] for assistance.

Does anyone know a contact in NVIDIA that would have any concern over
(driver, etc.) issues like this?
