Confirmed here too, same driver. Previous workaround does not work,
viewer crashes as soon as basic shaders are enabled no matter what point
it's done - on my system this is a regression from previous behavior
when the GL bug could be avoided by setting gfx prefs to mid or lower 
for login and setting them back up to desired settings after everything 
rezzed. Only workaraound for current behavior is a registry tweak:
Create or set the following key in

TdrDelay:REG_DWORD set to 60 decimal to allow a 60s graphics driver
timeout rather than the 2s default.

Note that changing this value from default is considered a serious
failure by Microsoft and absolutely precludes an app from gaining
windows logo certification if it is required for normal operation.
