If all else fails, try vacuuming out the nvidia card heatsink and fan. Did mine the other day as it was full of gunk, as well as the rest of my case.

</div>Thanks for all the suggestions.
Following up on them seems to have scared the symptom into submission
for now, which in the short term is ideal, and I now have a plan for

Couldn't trigger it with xev
htop running
lmsensors installed and I'll work out how to use it this evening.
