I don't think this is a NVIDIA problem. Please try to get your system back 
into the state before running nvidia-xconfig, e..g move /etc/X11/xorg.conf 
out of the way, there shouldn't have been a config file at all in a fresh 
squeeze install. Try to reproduce the original problem and 
attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the logfile from gdm3 (sorry, I don't know 
where to find this) to this bug. You'll have to save the logs while in 
recovery mode, otherwise they get overwritten at the next restart.

(with no xorg.conf the proprietary NVIDIA driver won't be used at all...)
