I do. Although some things probably need to be fixed in the driver, I 
have had several issues with certain versions of GTK+. All I can tell, 
is that version 2.4.10 of GTK+ is the only one since several releases 
that seems to work without problems. That's also the case on my laptop, 
which has an i830M graphical chipset and thus doesn't use nvidia's driver.

Try uninstalling GTK+; check that no GTK+ file remains on your system 
after 'make uninstall' (I noticed that libgtk-x11-2.0.so* still remained 
in /usr/lib sometimes), then build and install version 2.4.10. It might 
solve your issues.
