I am running xubuntu-default-settings 14.04.5 and I assure you all, this bug is not "fixed". I still have two instances of "Additional Drivers" In Settings Manager and one instance that I do not want of "Nvidia X Server Settings" even after a full purge and reboot.

To follw up, I had to do a fresh install of 14.04 to clear out the multiple instances. I was having other wierd things going on anyway. What I can say is that the problem, at least in my case because I was running Nvidia 337.xx on 12.04 for crypto currency mining, may have stemmed from not properly removing the manually installed Nvidia driver prior to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04.
