Public bug reported:

can we please get nvidia drivers updated to latest release. I was
looking at changes for 173.14.09 and it is as follows

Release Highlights

    * Fixed aliased font rendering corruption on X.Org server 1.5.
    * Fixed a display corruption problem driving two dual-link DFPs with Quadro FX 1700 GPUs.
    * Fixed a regression that prevented the X driver from starting on some GeForce FX, 6 and 7 mobile GPUs.
    * Fixed a locale-interaction issue in the nvidia-settings X server configuration file parser.
    * Added preliminary support for Linux 2.6.26.

It seems like ive seen these bugs before in LP but i cant be for sure. 
Im not sure if this fits backporting for hardy but since its LTS as long as nothing major needs to be backported it seems like a good idea. Im writing this because of a conversation i had with someone in #ubuntu about these drivers.
