Thank you for analyzing and trying to solve the problem!

It seems to be a really sucking problem with the configuration of this installation.
Is there a chance for a simply and clean reinstall of all the stuff around X and Nvida?
Maybe this could save the personal settings and get the same situation as a new installation?

Otherwise i think this will cost to much time for further analyzing of this problem.
Then there only two options:
1. Wait and try another upgrade from wheezy to jessie in hope that it will work later.
2. Uninstall the nvidia debian packages and try to use the original NVidia installer.
    (I have no idea what the NVidia installer is making different that it works?)

Best regards
