xserver crashes machine with nvidia quadro nvs140m

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-restricted-modules

I have a ThinkPad R61 with nvidia quadro nvs140m. After updates, my xserver crashes. Attempts to fix by using dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg per the instructions in xorg.conf do not work. Nor does removing the xorg.conf file, and then starting x. The problem may be in the file /usr/share/linux-restricted-modules/2.6.22-12-generic/modules.alias.override/nvidia
Changing the line:
alias pci:v000010DEd00000429sv*sd*bc03sc*i* nvidia_legacy
alias pci:v000010DEd00000429sv*sd*bc03sc*i* nvidia_new
allows successful use of nvidia-glx-new
