I had a similar problem to this (custom overscan reset to default
after X restart/reboot), and here is my solution. When I saved the
settings in the nvidia-settings utility, it did NOT save an xorg.conf
file -- it saved a .nvidia-settings-rc file in my home directory. This
file must be loaded manually with the command

nvidia-settings -l

each time X is launched. I placed the above command in my .xinitrc
file just prior to my window manager being launched, and now my
settings are restored as desired.
