I see the following possibilities for further investigation:

* try to reproduce the problem without the non-free nvidia driver, if
this succeeds (i.e. the problem still exists) we can reassign the bug
back to xorg
* test with the current nvidia driver from testing (unfortunately we
don't have backports of the current nvidia driver, yet)
* wait until current nvidia drivers are available in backports
