Thanks for your feedback. I can't say I'm "happy" that someone else is
having the same problem, but I'm relieved that it's not just something
odd with the setup I am using.

Any luck? I'm hoping to have a chance to look more into this myself in
the next few weeks once some other projects calm down. Ironically my
next step was going to be going after an updated video card driver.

Hello Deoren,

adding elrepo and installing kmod-nvidia seems to have solved the issue.
I hope this works for you as wel.

greetings, Johan
