I have the same problem.  Since I've been reading this thread, I've
found that Alt+SysRq+K does nothing in GNOME or at the GDM screen (other
than attempt to take a screenshot), but works fine in a virtual terminal
(F1-F6).  (I too use the proprietary nvidia driver from Restricted
Modules, but my VTs work fine...)

Mike, please let me know if/when you file a bug; I'd be interested in
posting any info that the devs might find useful in fixing this.
