Description: After upgrading nvidia driver to version 337.12, I cannot use gedit anymore. Keyboard strikes were horribly slow to show on screen. I had to wait nearly 2 seconds between key stroke and modification on screen.

Gnome shell was slower too.

Downgrading to nvidia 334.21 fixes the bug.

Additional info:
Nvidia 337.12

Steps to reproduce:
1) Upgrade to nvidia 337.12
2) Reboot
3) Launch gedit. And try to enter a text. See how much time it takes.
This task depends upon

This bug seems to related to Gnome not repainting properly.

No more lags in Gedit or in Gnome. Could be closed as fixed.
