[PC-BSD Testing] Better nVidia Driver for PCBSD 7 AMD64?

I would welcome suggestions about my shutdown/restart dilemma: whenever 
I go to the menu and choose "Leave" and whether I choose to shutdown or 
restart I seem to get the same behaviour: the current session ends, but 
Xserver seems to hang and I am left with a white pointer on a black 
background. on rare occasions after a pause, the shutdown sequence will 
continue, but most of the times I have to use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to 
terminate the X-windows session and choose shutdown or restart from the 
new login screen.

This happens both on my 32 bit install (Acer Aspire One Netbook) or my 
64bit AMD Desktop.

Also, is there a way to toggle the "Quick Tips" on and off during 
install? On my Netbook, the tips overlay some of the other buttons 
(because of the limited 600 pixel height of the screen and it's a 
frustrating guessing game at times trying to go forward from one screen 
to the next when installing. More than one I have found myself moving 
backwards rather than forward through screens and trying to figure out 
how many times I need to hit the "Tab" key before I get to the right 
hidden button.
