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...)
