I was thinking it could be a corrupt file or something like that. Just 
maybe.  Weird things happen.  Since I use Gentoo, it may be a bit different.

Since you narrowed it down to Nvidia causing this, that would be a good 
place to post this.  Maybe someone there can reproduce the problem that 
can debug it better than we can.

I hope this will get fixed soon for ya.  I hate it when their is a roach 
running around in software.   ;-)
