I've got this fixed in SVN now. Nvidia released an updated version of this legacy
driver which corrected the core-dumps and it seems to work properly again :) It'll
be in the 7.1.1 final release.

> RC2 works great on Intel 82855 chipset ("ExtremeGraphics 2").

Great! Glad to hear the fixes are helping things :)
