I know this is playing with fire but I did this:

sudo ln -s /etc/alternatives/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1

This points the "multiarch" version to where the /usr/lib version points. Save the original symlink to libGL.so.1.2 to be safe but easy enough to restore is need be. You might also manually point the nvidia/diversion to that one.

Anyway, I had X and NVidia driver working fine but openGL apps crashed out.

After this symlink, flightgear started fine so it fixed my problem in any event. Nouveau might not find libGL at all right now.

This multiarch business may be a good idea, but partial upgrades to Sid can cause havoc as did recent upgrades to libc6 stuff on my box. Please finish it and then post the upgrades :-)
