It seems to me that video cards are becoming increasingly complex. And as such, the driver developers have to cram more into each driver package than ever.
Back in the XP days, it was almost a certainty that a BSOD during hibernation was due to video drivers only.
Then we went to it being a mix of drivers (storage, wifi, chipset, USB, etc) - and troubleshooting became more difficult.
Now I'm often faced with (during BSOD analysis) several video card related drivers in a single memory dump - making me wonder which component of the video card is actually to blame.
As for the error popping in and out - this is (IMO) a result of the increasingly complex construction of video cards (and their drivers).
I believe that the problem existed in the oldest driver - but was not exposed (to the system) because the advanced features weren't calling on it to do the work that caused the error.
Then the advanced features came out - and they called on the driver to do this (and that exposed the error).
Then they had to go back and fix that (in the latest version).
IMO this is due to the pressure to come out with newer, better video solutions as fast as possible.
The quality control could be better served (again IMO) by testing longer before releasing a driver package.
