Let me say that I expected this kind of reaction.

Of course you don't have sources to nvidia driver. That doesn't change the fact
that decision of using first release of GTK on Cairo makes Breezy mostly
unusable on nvidia cards. The logical
choice would be not rushing to use GTK 2.8 because of possible unexpected issues
like this (what, it was released when - few weeks ago? How about testing it for
two-three months before?) and all this with no 
actual improvements to end users at the time being. GTK on Cairo currently
brings slowdowns for users, nothing beyond that.

Well, you prefer to rush radically new version of major platform toolkit in the
stable distribution the consequences be damned. It is your decision as the
my decision will be to skip Ubuntu from now on. This is the kind of regression I
would expect from Debian/Sid, but never from stable release.
