Default strange problem with 185.19

I've installed the 185.19 driver without problems on my debian sid.
My kernel-version is 2.6.29-1.towo.2-sidux-amd64.

But, if the computer boots up, a wrong version of nvidia.ko was load, but on my harddisk, there is only one nvidia.ko in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/drivers/video.

If i do an modprobe -r nvidia && modprobe nvidia, the modul was load right.
Here are the optput of dmesg:
NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 185.19, but
NVRM: this kernel module has the version 185.13.  Please
NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
NVRM: components have the same version.
nvidia 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module  185.19  Sat Apr  4 07:04:57 PST 2009
IRQ 16/nvidia: IRQF_DISABLED is not guaranteed on shared IRQs
I have no clue, where's the issue, because i only have one nvidia.ko on my harddisc.
It's very strange and mysterious.

You probably have the old module in your initrd. Rebuild your initrd with the new module.
