Please do not dismiss this report - I've experienced the very same 
symptoms (nvidia-less and not tainted systems). Never reported them 
because could not find what was blocking and why. But the experience 
related there is very close to mine.

I think the effects are worse on old slow systems, and under the human 
tolerance threshold on faster computers (thanksfully I'm back on my fast 
system now, rawhide on an Athlon 550 was disgusting last week)
