Looks like with nouveau my system is again solid as a rock, but not quite as pretty as it was with the NVidia blob. I am a little surprised that the problem is not so widespread in this Slackware forum but I know that Google has seen the issue many times and not just recently. Waiting for newer NVidia drivers before I try again, sigh....

Thanks for that, I have actually jumped back a little to the 'legacy' driver although I believe this is not necessary for my card and have been using 304.84. So far so good...

I've had freezing up: -current (kernel 3.7.1) using the nouveau driver on a motherboard with integrated Geforce 7025 graphics. Within a few seconds of logging into to a user account using KDE, or even attempting to launch Firefox from within FVWM. No Ctrl-Alt-Bksp, Alt-SysRq combinations worked.

I've since installed nVidia 304.84 drivers, but need to see if that improves matters.

304.84 seems ok so far but black screen when logout. I can see a fix for kde but I am using Fluxbox...

I am marking this thread Solved as my own situation has stabilised completely. Currently running kernel 3.8.4 and NVidia 313.26 and no more freezing or black windows on logout. I can see by these Forums that the NVidia drivers are going through a rough patch at the moment so I am glad to have found a solution in my own case .
