I use the vesa driver because I just cannot seem to get nvidia to stay 
working between reboots.  But I checked which versions I have installed 
and I see that I have 177 installed but not 180.  The last 
nvidia-related package I seem to have installed was nvidia-common from 
0.2.4 to on 8 April which is a while before these problems 
started appearing.

Thanks for your advice though.
