      Alright!

      Did I misread something here, or does the article say that the new NVIDIA driver offers new bugs?

      The NVIDIA 280.13 driver offers support for new ASICs (the GeForce GTX 570M/580M), various GLX bugs, an X driver bug, new GLX protocol support, and various other fixes.

          * Fixed a GLX bug that could cause the X server to crash when
          rendering a display list using GLX indirect rendering.

          * Fixed a GLX bug that could cause a hang in applications that
          use X server grabs.

          * Fixed an X driver bug that caused 16x8 stipple patterns to
          be rendered incorrectly.
