Turns out the nvidia installer puts things under /usr/X11R6/lib..., while the 
new xorg updates (in debian/testing) now use /usr/lib/xorg/modules.  Putting 
these two lines under 'Section "Files"' in /etc/X11/xorg.conf fixes the 

# Make sure this is in the 'Section "Files"' section:

   ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers"
   ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions"
