I use nvidia-drivers on a fairly up to date 64 bit Linux system. Since upgrading to a driver newer then 310 I observed that X was using a lot of CPU. It took me a while to find out that this was caused somehow by the nvidia-driver which was reporting continuously monitor connections/disconnections. It seems realy strange so I created a video of the output of xrandr. Here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3lTDI91Afg.
Should I file a bug report for this?
Extra info: I have a GeForce GTX 260 connected to a DVI monitor. Sometimes after booting the monitor is not correctly detected (the monitor doe not receive any input) although nothing else is plugged in the video card.
I tried Option “UseHotplugEvents” “false” without any success since this behavior would appear again when any vdpau enabled applications would run.
