Thanks for passing it on. Even if not all users, a sufficient portion 
probably. Have replied all in this email.

You seem to have hit the nail on the head. Added that line to the script 
nvidia-glx, commented out the delay I had added in /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc, 
rebooted, and it came up to a normal logon screen without even 
displaying the green nVidia logo. I then went in and made sure 
everything was set back to what it was when this issue started for me - 
took out those two lines from the nvidia-glx script that were tried 
earlier, ensured that numbering was still S17nvidia-glx in rc2.d. 
Rebooted. 6 times. Each time without any errors, without seeing the 
nVidia logo, and boot was acceptably and perceptibly quicker than what 
was before even the update of the initscripts yesterday. Only things 
couldn't change was whatever changes running update-rc.d made earlier in 
the day (see history of problem).

Checked the various logs, and was unable to see anything that may help.

Anything that I can do that can help to isolate this further?

Ran /usr/share/insserv/make-testsuite again, and have attached the 
output in case of any use.

After the to and fro'ing during the course of the day, am inclined to 
accept your view now that the problem is in the nvidia package.
> Happy hacking,
With greetings
