Nvidia keeps the older versions of their drivers on their respective
downloadsites, so no worries there. And even if they fix it for us _now_, the
libc version bump isn't going to help either :)
Maybe I should look at the driver again after we bumped libc. Right now
there's no quick fix possible. I'll make a patch (not a dfport) anyway and
post it to submit@ for people to horse around with (but mainly for myself for
archival purposes) :)
A tautology is a thing which is tautological.
