VLC and MPV crash on exit with Nvidia 470 drivers

100% consistent, and I can always reproduce it. MPV segfaults in the NVIDIA EGL core shared library and VLC crashes in something OpenGL related. It’s on exit so nothing gained, nothing lost, but incredibly annoying. This is on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

Previously, it was only VLC that crashed on exit after viewing a 360 degree video, now both crash on exit even if you don’t load a video.

I have a very strong feeling this bug is related. Rolled back to 460.91.03 and the problem isn’t there.

No response from Nvidia.
