After a great deal of beating around on, mine seems to be working pretty
well. I am running 5.2-RELEASE now. I was previously using -CURRENT so that
the Atheros WLAN NIC would be supported. That was a little too volatile with
the nvidia drivers. So far, it seems to working great.

Here is my X config file:
