Nouveau driver crash with glxvblank set to true

I am running a Geforce 560 Ti. With the NVIDIA binary driver I am experiencing random slowdowns so I have switched back to the nouveau driver. However, when I try to put:

Section "Device" Identifier "nvidia card" Driver "nouveau" Option "GLXVBlank" "true" EndSection

into my xorg.conf to enable vsync my computer goes into a loop before GDM finishes loading ( I only get a cursor) and after the 4 loop it hard locks. Without this code, my computer boots fine, but with tearing. I have found some bug reports through searching on Google that indicate this may be a driver bug. Is anyone else experiencing a similar issue? I only ask because my laptop which has a Geforce 210m is running fine with vsync turned on.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
