But 3.2 doesn't do the RC6 sleep, so the NVIDIA card  draws substantial more
power and runs the fan more often. Some more recent kernel supporting rc6
would be fine. 

Again: the crashes only happens when booting up,  before the first login
prompt. After reaching the login prompt after some tries, all is fine.
