I went 64-bit.

Everything is working *as well* as the 32 bit ver of 11.1 - That said, I'm
noticing some of the same problems that I was having with the 32-bit version:

Compiz screen refresh issue - from some of the other forums, I think this is
an Nvidia driver issue. Sometimes *frequently* window contents don't
update/refresh until I move the window/resize, etc. Any ideas on this?

Hard lock after about an hour. This *may* be related to the issue above.
After about an hour of use, the gui locks hard - can't ctrl-alt-backspace or
ctrl-alt-f1. Can only reboot. Next time it happens I'll try to ssh into it
and see if I can see anything weird.

I tried the KDE factory repository with compiz.

About an hour is how long I could go with out it locking up.
Fortunately cntrl-alt-f1 was working.

I did init 3; init 5 several times. Then I threw in the towel and
regressed back to what came on the DVD + the online security patches.
It has been far more stable for me since I did that.
