Try "sudo aptitude reinstall nvidia-glx-180".  For some reason that
seems to clear up some issues that sometimes come up.  Not sure whether
it'll fix that one or not.

I do know (from a previous thread and experience) that the nvidia
drivers currently in the avenard repo require you to uninstall your
existing nvidia drivers first before installing them.  You might try
removing all traces of nvidia stuff then installing it again.
