This issue is resolved by importing the latest upstream version of the
proprietary driver obtained from [1] and [2]. I did that for the
Wheezy clients at work by simply obtaining the source package for
the current version from wheezy-backports, replacing the two driver
packages with the new ones, adding a Debian changelog entry and
rebuilding the package.

I would refrain from using any hacks trying to resolve the issue since
might have negative impacts on the performance or stability of the
driver package.

I would suggest rising package urgency to high for the upload.
