  After upgrading to 14.04, nvidia-settings crashes with "BadValue" X
  Window System error

Status in nvidia-settings package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrading to 14.04 the screen resolution is not as I want and
  changing with nvidia-settings is not possible, because the program
  crashes when applying new settings.

  michael@quad:~$ nvidia-settings

  ERROR: Error querying target relations

  The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
  This probably reflects a bug in the program.
  The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
    (Details: serial 738 error_code 2 request_code 158 minor_code 25)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
     that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
     To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
     option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
     backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

  The crash occurs when using the "Apply" button.
