331.38 has run for two days now, no problems start kmail
since installing it.

openSUSE 13.1(Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop x86_64|
Intel(R) Quad Core™ i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10GHz|8GB DDR3|
GeForce 8400GS (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.38)|KDE 4.12.0

Just updated the Nvidia driver there to 331.38-23.1

No longer have this issue.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Well, it’s amazing what problems a graphics driver can cause…:sarcastic:

Anyway, good to know the cause for that problem. :slight_smile:
