Occasionally i get scrambled X session screen when i start X. This happens in ~10% cases.
In some cases screen wasn’t scrambled but shifted downwards by ~50 pixels or so (mouse cursor moves in this shifted X screen area). In other cases part of X screen is rendered (quarter of it), being stretched all over display’s surface, with vertical stripes all over it (similar effect you see when you use magnifying loop on a CRT TV/Monitor).
To fix scrambled X session i have to switch to tty and then switch back to X session. Sometimes it helps, sometimes - it’s not and i have to use hard reset (in those rare cases it is even impossible to switch to tty) and pray next time i startx, i’ll get proper rendered X session screen.
Such driver’s behaviour was introduced since 304.60 drivers release. I had no such problems with prior drivers.
ps: i use fully updated Slackware 14.0, 32 bit; Geforce 7600GS, latest nvidia driver - 304.88.
