Appears to be working fine now, haven't seen any problems, so closing bug report since I don't know what fixed it.

I got this error when installing Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu 10.04 beta 1 (fresh install, all updates applied). It's repeatable. Since this is closed I'll find an open bug with the same error and upload the crash report.
