you need to downgrade the whole Xorg stack ...

I just tried in a pbuilder chroot which has unstable and testing sources available:

apt-get install xorg xserver-xorg-video-all xserver-xorg-input-all
# installs 1.11.0 from unstale and a lot of packages depending on it,
# probably matching your setup

apt-get remove xserver-xorg-core
# remove the whole xorg stack

apt-get install nvidia-glx xserver-xorg-core/testing
# get the invidia packages from unstable + xorg from testing

apt-get install -t testing xorg xserver-xorg-video-all xserver-xorg-input-all
# reinstall the removed packages from testing

Remove + reinstall as two steps seems to be easier than downgrading in one step
