Since one of the recent commits the XServer will immediately crash when I try to open either Firefox or Thunderbird (not observed yet with other apps).
It is still possible to open their profile managers before crashing with a chosen profile, though.
The xserver was compiled with debug symbols; alas this did not result in a more meaningful backtrace.
* Arch Linux x64
* xserver 184.108.40.2064(-git)
* Firefox Nightly, Thunderbird 15.0b3
* pixman 0.27.2(-git), libdrm 2.4.38, mesa 8.0.4
* nvidia 304.32

Same with nvidia 304.37.
Please get an evemu description for this device and attach it here.
sorry, by "this device" I mean the ITE8708 CIR transceiver

If that's not the entire description, please write what else I should do.
ok, apparently not the input device that causes the issues. Can you reproduce this with nouveau instead of the binary driver?
Removing the xorg.conf and using a new Firefox profile didn't fix the crash with the proprietary driver, but no crashes at all with nouveau-git.
Sounds like a bug with the binary driver, sorry. Please file it with the appropriate nvidia support channels.
