Thanks, Mat.  I'll submit an update today.

Also, for the admins:

I while back I posted to this list that I will drop maintaining the
nvidia-legacy340 and nvidia-legacy304 scripts due to time, hardware
constraints and obsolescence (i.e. lack of nvidia support). Somewhere in
the list archives should be a message of whoever stepped up to take
over. Either that, or we need to tag these as unmaintained.

Nvidia has not updated either of these drivers for over a year.  Also,
the oldest functional cards I still have are EVGA GTX 430 and GTX 550
Ti, which can utilize the nvidia-legacy390 drivers.
