Default Xserver in infinite loop with OpenGL apps and NVIDIA 275.28, Xserver 1.10.4

After upgrading to NVIDIA 275.28 and Xserver 1.10.4 on my Linux 2.6.39-2-686-pae (Debian 2.6.39-3)
OpenGL operations repeatably lead to rendering errors, some of which leave the Xserver in an infinite loop
[see attached nvidia-bug-report attached and below].

The same error happens with NVIDIA 280.13 and Xserver 1.11.1.

In all cases xorg.conf disabled ABI. This was working properly with NVIDIA 275.09.07 but rollback to this
version no longer fixes the problem.

This bug is related to the Debian bug #642497
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=642497

OpenGL problems seen in 3 different packages:
1. /usr/lib/xscreensaver/molecule and /usr/lib/xscreensaver/endgame from xscreensaver-gl 5.14 displays extraneous shapes from
the center of the image to the edge of the window

2. /usr/bin/osgdatabaserevisions from openscenegraph-3.0.0-2 also displays extraneous shapes as the image rotates

3. most serious of all, fgfs from flightgear-2.0.0-4 will display lots of extraneous shapes, have lots of flickering pixels and within
minutes either lock up the X server or else make it impossible to scroll down any list (or even use less on xterm or gnome-terminal)
[The same will happen with the flight simulator from googleearth but it takes longer to see the problem.]
The X server lockup has the following on /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
[ 672.814] [mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.
