Try changing the nvidia-glx script header to look like this, and run
'update-rc.d /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx defaults' (ignore the warning) to
reorder the boot:

# Provides:          nvidia-glx
# Required-Start:    $remote_fs
# Required-Stop:     $remote_fs
# Should-Start:      nvidia-kernel
# X-Start-Before:    kdm
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      
# Short-Description: messing around with the libGL.so symlink
# Description:       messing around with the libGL.so symlink

This change will make sure the nvidia-glx script run after the
nvidia-kernel script and before kdm also with parallel boot.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
