|After couple of hours browsing system slows down up to unusable state. top shows X eating 100% CPU, most of time is spend in GetXIDRange().
After some debugging I suspect that the problem resides somewhere in nvidia drivers.
Downgrading nvidia-drivers to 295.75 solves the problem,
xorg-server - 1.12.2
Unfortunately I don't have a time to dig further - so any comments from NVidia or X developers is much appreciated.
