Looks like we need to stay way from the 285 series for now.

I installed this earlier this week, along with new kdelibs packages
few others; the system has had problems since then and I've reverted to
280.13. It feels happier but not enough experience with it yet to be sure
that the new driver is the culprit.
The hardware is a GeForce 7500 LE, so not VDPAU capable. Effects seen were
segfaults in Mythfrontend while using the cutpoint editor, uncertain start
of playback with occasional segfaults, and finally inability to do more than
load the unwritten frontend screen before segfaulting. Before the changes
earlier this week the system had been generally troublefree.
As another message I cross-posted from the mythtv list confirms, I had
major issues with this new driver. I could not log in remotely,
mythbackend was segfaulting, other stability issues. 285.05.09 does
not seem ready for prime time.
