Well, I've went back to 5.1RC2 (kernel, userland) and back to 
my (backed up) packages from pkgsrc-2010Q2, a combination 
previously working. That's in contrast to pkg/43493, where
going back makes things work again. It doesn't for me.
I'll try some more things today though.

I've never. I figured that's par for the nv course. Seems I'm wrong
about that, too.

Note that the busids are the same - just the syntax is different
(PCI:2:0:0 vs. PCI:2@2:0:0 or so, the X.log's are linked from the
original message).
