It's not related to the nvidia driver, but to the xorg package.

The fix is to rebuild the xorg package xorg-xserver-base with the patch as discussed on the xorg upstream bug. I obtained the patch through here: (see attachments)

rebuilt with

- aptitude source xorg-xserver-base
- prepared package according to
- applied patch manually (didn't pick it up automatically, but that's due to my lack of experience with debian source packages)
- built packages
- installed with dpkg -i

This is a critical bug for anybody using motif applications (nedit and plenty of others).
It would be nice if the patch could be reviewed and applied in an update quickly - it's preventing us from upgrading the office to 10.04 at the moment.
