I understand your eagerness to fix this asap, but I'm not going to interfere 
with Andreas bug-triage efforts.
But I can say this:
- When trying to find a problem, only change 1 variable at a time, otherwise 
you don't know which change caused a change in behaviour.
- Don't use NVidia's .run file if you're reporting an issue on a Debian 
package, since they're not meant to be co-installed (and Debian's package 
cleans thing up from a possible previous .run installation).
- Use the same system/installation on all bug-triage efforts, otherwise you're 
comparing completely different systems (btw 3.12 kernel on wheezy and not from 

I've been running Debian's NVidia packages for years, without any issue, 
including on my freshly installed system I'm running now.
