Default Driver installation broken after reboot

After installing the drivers for my brand new 2.6.10 kernel with x.org, I did a startx and everything worked perfectly. The problem came after reboot: when X was suposed to start, it showed the nvidia logo and then went back to console. it did 3 retries but it just didn't want to start. The logs showed that the startup crashed just after glx was started, so disabeling the glx module in the xorg.conf brought it to work (partially). After some more research I found the problem was the startup script nvidia-glx wich somehow corrupts the installation. Reinstalling the drivers and deleting the script before reboot fixed the problem.
Hope this doesn't have any consequences, but for now it looks like it works perfectly.

Fixing this for future releases would be greatly appreciated.

It's not really a nvidia driver issue, but a debian package issue. The nvidia-glx package is ONLY for using debians own packages, since it relinking the wrong files when the driver is manually installed.
