Ah, well yes ia32 stuff is a bit broken on unstable at the moment.

I suspect if you used ia32-apt-get after setting it up according to its
README, then it would be able to do it.  It worked for me.

I did this:

run 'apt-get install ia32-apt-get'

create /etc/apt/preferences containing:
Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable-i386
Pin-Priority: 400

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing-i386
Pin-Priority: 400

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable-i386
Pin-Priority: 400

run '/usr/share/ia32-apt-get/convert-all-sources.list'

run 'ia32-apt-get update'

run 'ia32-apt-get install nvidia-glx-ia32'

I think those were all the steps I did.
