Rstudio crashing graphics driver

Hi, I'm posting here to report my experience with this issue per

I have recently upgraded to 1.4.1717 on Windows 10 and started getting Rstudio and graphics driver crashes unless I force software rendering. I haven't worked out how to reproduce the initial crash, but after it happens for the first time it happens again as soon as I reopen RStudio unless I reboot. Software rendering mode lets me start RStudio without rebooting. It actually seems that the hardware acceleration gets completely borked until I reboot - I can't even run games whether OpenGL or D3D.

The data from the Windows Event Log is as follows:

Faulting application name: rstudio.exe, version: 1.4.1717.0, time stamp: 0x60ac3b38
Faulting module name: nvoglv64.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x60d01070

There is a second event specific to the NVIDIA OpenGL Driver:

Unable to recover from a kernel exception. The application must close.

Error code: 3 (subcode 2)
(pid=5712 tid=11136 rstudio.exe 64bit)

My GPU is a GeForce 2060 Super - I haven't had issues in any other hardware-rendering applications (particularly games).

R version 4.1.0 (2021-05-18)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
Running under: Windows 10 x64 (build 19043)

I think I can provide crash minidumps if that is of use. Given that software rendering seems to fix the issue I'm more posting this to help RStudio investigate the problem, rather than looking for an immediate fix for myself.
