Hi All.

I recently upgraded to the nvidia-drivers-313.26 and saw two strange issues.

First was that eve had some really strange issues, like the cursor vanishing in the PI view.
Secondly when Skype was running X would use 100% cpu on 2 cores making most things usable.

Downgrading to nvidia-drivers-310.32 fixes both these issues.

I'm running 3.6.11-gentoo kernel 64 bit.

net-im/skype-4.1.0.20
app-emulation/wine-1.5.26

Use flags =
Code:
USE="mmx sse sse2"
USE="$USE xinerama"
USE="$USE v4l"
USE="$USE xft"
USE="$USE gtk3"


This is the first issue I have had with an nvidia driver in a long time and I'm very surprised.

I've not heard of those problems before. Best place to report them is Nvidia's forum.

Also, 310.40 is latest in 310 series - see Nvidia releases.
