Thanks for the links. I overlooked the Nvidia devtalk for some reason.
Looks like SBo will have to stick with 304.131 for now.  The are 2 minor
bugs in the slackbuild and nvdia-switch that I will correct an post today.

As for the image of 304.132 on Fedora: Bah. I was able to get that far.
The desktop runs fine (2D), but try any 3D opengl/glx function, or even
just clicking on OpenGL/GLX Information, and the bug occurs.
