The user seemed to solve the problem by unistalling+purging+reinstalling 
the nvidia driver, no more no less :-)

More than a bug I'd say it sounds like a configuration issue with some 
files. And remember that you can also install the nvidia driver in the 
"hard way" (by downloading from nvidia site and compiling by yourself). 
In this case, note that you have to use the latest available version of 
the driver that provides support for you card model (I think is 
"173.14.30" :-?).
