As far as I know, changing the sequence number of a script will not
affect parallel booting.  Did you use S7nvidia-glx or S07nvidia-glx?
If the former, I suspect this caused the script to not run at all
during boot.  I suspect there is some race issue causing some but not
all boots to fail.

Btw, what is the name of the package providing /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx
on your machine (dpkg -S /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx).

Please try the adjusted header for nvidia-glx I posted earlier, and
let me know if it helps.

Happy hacking,
