Hello bjoernP,
Here are the info:
Sure it's a directory, that's nvidia complains about when trying to start.

At bootup in console mode ie: state after shutdow:
ls -l /dev/nvid*
Total 0.
ls -al /dev/nvid*
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 déc 18 2003 ./
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 0 jan 1 1970 ../

ls -l /lib/dev-state/nvid*
Total 0
ls -al /lib/dev-state/nvid*
drwxr-xr-t 2 root root 4096 déc 14 00.04 ./
drwxr-xr-t 15 root root 4096 déc 15 19.10 ../

After removing the /dev/nvidiactl, startx and kde in su mode:

[root@rominet jm]# ls -l /dev/nvid*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 0 jan 1 1970 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 jan 1 1970 /dev/nvidiactl
[root@rominet jm]# ls -al /dev/nvid*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 0 jan 1 1970 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 jan 1 1970 /dev/nvidiactl
[root@rominet jm]# ls -l /lib/dev-state/nvid*
total 0
[root@rominet jm]# ls -al /lib/dev-state/nvid*
total 8
drwxr-xr-t 2 root root 4096 déc 14 00:04 ./
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 déc 15 19:10 ../

Lots of differences about rights, note also the "déc" with an accent .... and the dates.
Thanks.
