[Bug 1214508] Re: nvidia-settings >=319 segfaults on close


The official version of nvidia-settings-304 in the precise-updates
repository points to version 331. So if you have precise-updates
enabled, even if you try to install the 304 version, it will install 331
by default. One needs to manually select an older version to get around
this bug.
