F16: Nvidia driver causes xorg crash

Since a few weeks I'm kicked out of the Gnome session randomly when watching Zattoo (Internet TV based on Flash). X-Server seems to crash ... When logging with a XFCE session everthing is fine!

... Gdk-WARNING: gnome-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ...

I'm using latest kernel (64-Bit) and proprietary Nvidia driver 290.49 (NVIDIA graphics cards GTS240) ... Problem exists since Nvidia driver 290.40, I guess.

I found the following Ubuntu bug which seems to be related, but there's no Fedora or Gnome bug report so far:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rs/+bug/973096

is there anyone else having X-Server crashes with NVIDA drivers?! Any hints?

It isn't a fedora/gnome issue so it would be pointless to report it there.
The link to the ubuntu bugreport made me laugh, the idiots there seem to think that the ubuntu devs should work around the clock to fix it

The correct place to report this issue is @ nvnews

This looks like the same issue to me

I'm wondering why it's not a gnome issue when it's working perfectly with Xfce instead?!

unity and gnome-shell use 3d to draw the desktop, xfce doesn't.

I'm back using the Nouveau Driver ... And until now it works smoothly without crashes. The only thing that I noted was some flickering when opening Stellarium, but the rest seems to be ok.

I followed this "guide" to deinstall the proprietary driver:
