Is your MacPro running in 64-bit mode upon restartt? Check here:
About This Mac > More Info > System Report > Software > 64-Bit extensions: YES
If you are on Mountain Lion, it is not relevent.
Yes it is in 64 bit mode and running Lion. I tried updating drivers on Friday and it told me that I didn't need to update. I seem to remember the GPU Sniffer showing me that I had the current diver for 10.7.4 Lion - 270.00.00f06
Also zapped PRAM and reinstalled the Kona drivers after uninstalling the Black Magic stuff.
I think some parameter got messed when both cards were installed. Probably a Kext or someting. What I don't know is how to set it right.
Well they are in session right now. The issue still persists, but the system is functioning as expected. The editor told me that with Premiere we should expect several crashes and restarts every day. I'll just have to show him the CUDA installer so he can reinstall after each restart. In the short time I have worked with Premiere I have found that logging out and back in usually gets things working again and this does not disable the MPE.

That means something is wrong in your system and needs fixing. It is not the norm and no one should be expecting that kind of issue.
FWIW: I have seen maybe 2 crashes since the day CS6 was released whenever that was.
His comment was about his own system in NYC. He uses it all the time, I don't. So I don't really have an opinion just yet. I may get on the system and build a new system drive from scratch one evening this week and see what happens.
I use Pr just about every day, and I concur with your editor: Pr crashes frequently and needs lots of relaunches, resetting prefs, and deleting of the Media Cache. But, I usually manage to get it running again, for a while, until the next round of rinse and repeat.
I wish I could figure out what Shooternz is doing that I'm not. Or, vice-versa.
Anyway... JeffOps, I salute you for your excellent OP in its clarity and breadth. I wish that all posters here were as thorough and articulate at stating their grievances.
What might be an issue is installing the latest CUDA driver with your OS. The latest is for Mountain Lion compatibility (and a couple other bugs, listed on the nVidia site), and you have Lion.
I jumped the gun on that myself, and I also ran the latest Dynamic Link Media Server updates, and although I'm not sure which is to blame, it wasn't an improvement. So, I reverted back to The Devil I Know. I know, I shouldn't have done two updates at once. I normally wait until the "all clear" to do any upgrading, but I guess I broke my own rule this time.
