[nvidia card] heisenbug

I was enjoying my nvidia card for some time, but I think I  have hit a heisenbug:

If I start tuxracer (favourite testing program for video card), the xserver crashes with signal 11.

(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200"
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
(==) RandR enabled
(II) Initializing built-in extension MIT-SHM
(II) Initializing built-in extension XInputExtension
(II) Initializing built-in extension XTEST
(II) Initializing built-in extension XKEYBOARD
(II) Initializing built-in extension LBX
(II) Initializing built-in extension XC-APPGROUP
(II) Initializing built-in extension SECURITY
(II) Initializing built-in extension XINERAMA
(II) Initializing built-in extension XFree86-Bigfont
(II) Initializing built-in extension RENDER
(II) Initializing built-in extension RANDR

The only thing I did was pacman -Syu.
I compiled the 2.6.7 kernel straight from

The strange thing is that when I try reinstalling the kernel, it says the kernel sources are other than the running kernel, but that's not true. Although I know computers make several magnitudes less errors than me, programmars tend to make them...

I updated x, perhaps that's the issue, but I don't think so. I have always been running the xorg server. Anyone that can spill some idea's :?:

Re: [nvidia card] heisenbug

Upgrading x causes:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX

. Nvidia installs its own opengl libs but after x upgrade they are replaced by original x opengl libs. Reinstall nvidia drivers (and do it after each kernel, x upgrade too).

Re: [nvidia card] heisenbug

It works...
I had to do a reboot.

Well, after I think over it again, I think I just had to unload some modules. Well, the effect is the samen, it works...
