No. First and foremost, 32 Bit support is about supporting 32 Bit

Works for me. But then I don't use nVidia drivers.

What do you expect when using testing/unstable? Their sole purpose is to
find and fix bugs. If you use it, expect to find bugs.

Really, I can understand if people are a little upset that the
transition (in testing/unstable) to multiarch breaks a few things. And I
am not happy myself that it looks like wheezy will not include a smooth
transition. But that does not mean multiarch is generally broken and
that Debian should keep distributing monstrosities like ia32-libs.

Debian as a whole never cared very much for non-free software. This
should not surprise you.

Sure, if that helps.
