Thanks for letting me know about this Michael.

Do you have a URL for viewing the issue number 1060346, or is that an
internal bug tracker number?  If the latter, is there a forum or mailing
list post from NVIDIA referencing that, which we could refer to?

Having a Launchpad bug report to follow this would be helpful.  The most
useful way to file this bug would be to reproduce the crash, and then on
the crashed system file the bug via 'ubuntu-bug xorg', which will
collect all the log and config files we need.  Then also reference any
and all background material (steps to reproduce, external bug #'s, forum
discussions, etc.)  Elaborating on any/all testing activity you've done
can also be invaluable.
