Did you mistype the bug title? It mentions a different option ...

I have a similar setup with a handmade xorg.conf (showing Device section

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "nvidia"
        Option          "TwinView"
        Option          "MetaModes"     "CRT-0: 1600x1200, DFP-0:
1680x1050; , DFP-0: 1680x1050"
        Option          "TwinViewOrientation"   "CRT-0 LeftOf DFP-0"

on a G84M [Quadro NVS 140M] GPU. Only other difference I see on a quick
glance is kernel 2.6.32-3 vs. 2.6.32-5.

You should probably check in the NVIDIA Linux forum for a similar report
and make a new one if noone reported this problem so far, following the
bug reporting instructions found there.

There is nothing the Debian NVIDIA packaging team can do about bugs in
the closed-source driver.

If you find/post something over there please post a link here, too, so
progress can be followed.
