Seems like no one has much experience with this. My only suggestion
would be to make sure you are using the latest driver available from
nvidia.com. I don't know how closely the Debian package repository
tracks the NVIDIA drivers, but the Debian-based Ubuntu ones are not
updated very frequently. The downside to using NVIDIA's installer is
that you will need to reinstall the NVIDIA driver every time you update
the Linux kernel.
