Thanks for the reply.
I am able to get a stack trace. The call to NVSync() that locks the
system comes from somewhere in libxaa.so. The particular function
varies but it's always from XAA. I'm willing to do whatever I can to
help fix this bug. I can reliably reproduce it; I just don't know how
to fix it.
I do have a workaround. If I set "Options ShadowFB" in xorg.conf, I can
run the nv driver at reasonable speeds and without problems. I don't
know what I'm giving up by doing that but it seems to work OK.
Please let me know what I can do to help fix this.
