Thanks. For reference, I did the same test. With the driver downloaded
from NVIDIA the issues also occurs in my case.

Where do you look for this at nvidia, in the community forums? Or is
there another publicly available bug tracking system? (which I was
unable to find)

Surprisingly, I couldn't reproduce the issue anymore. Therefore at
first sight it seems to be fixed in the 387.34 driver.

I posted a question at nvidia anyway:
(although I'm not sure it is the right place, still having some issues
finding my way at nvidia.com, other suggestions or directions are
welcome of course)

Will short-lived drivers ever make it into the official elrepo
repository? Or will only the long-lived drivers be included in the
official repository?
