Done that, but Ctrl+Alt+Backspace still doesn't work.

I'll try on next X startup.
Meanwhile, I got the "nvidia" driver compiled, installed
and running. Tests like
% xlock -nolock -mode lament
% xlock -nolock -mode fire
show the FPS rate I've expected (no comparison to the 3
fps I got with "nv"). In "gears" there are > 5000 FPS,
that's _magnitudes_ better than with "nv".
But my text font in Sylpheed as well as the one used in
intclock is not a bit damaged (just chose a different one
in Sylpheed so I can see what I'm currently typing).
The next thing I have to try is triggering the system
freeze by using any Gtk+ application. :-)
I'd like to point out that the nvidia driver comes with
nice documentation: /usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README
contains lots of great stuff.
