I had a look at the open bugs against nvidia-glx, and came across
#521699 which seem similar to your problem.  Reassigning to the
nvidia-glx package to get input from the maintainers of that package,
and because I believe the problem is in that package.  Setting
serverity to serious, based on the assumtion that this problem will
affect all users with parallel booting now enabled by default.

Does it work to add for example 'sleep 5' at the end of the start
section in /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx?  Perhaps something need more time
before X is started?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
