Got it to start up. Any attemp to do DRI crashed X so ...
I installed Nvidia's driver of the same version number of the package on Sid.
Works just fine.

Maybe I'll leave the packages around, however to
1. Prevent overwrite of the nvidia X modules (probably not a problem the way 
the various ModulePaths are now).
2. Alert me when a new version is around. Then I go to Nvidia to get it. :-)
