I cannot reproduce this either.

I could only think of one case: glx-diversions is installed but not any
of the glx-alternative-{mesa,nvidia,fglrx} packages. But that must have
been a manual install since anything depending on glx-diversions (some
bits of a non-free graphics driver) will depend on (at least) one of
glx-alternative-*, too.
And glx-diversions also Recommends: glx-alternative-mesa, so if you end
up without any alternatives, this must have been done conciously.
