The problem is random locks and a very reproductible freeze when
watching a video (with Mplayer by example) via the Xvideo extension of
X. For xvideo, a work-around is to disabled it in Xorg (so it will be
not used). Yes I've tried to disable the composite extension.

I haven't found any solution for random locks (one or two per day).

I didn't want to start a holy war :) I'm just looking for a solution.

I will fill a PR in the Nvidia bugzilla.
