Well, I usually wait until the second or third point release of the
kernel before switching, and Tuz looks rather ugly... So, nothing
really important. OTOH, 180.29 runs very fine here apart from the small
glitches in the build system, so I'm not in a hurry to upgrade.
I've looked on Nvidia's Linux support forum, but the issue does not seem
to be known there, so little can be done probably.
