I have solved the problem from Nick B.'s suggesting to a related problem
in Firefox 3 in this thread.
It also references this thread which provides an updated libwfb from
nvidia which resolves this issue.
To temporily fix the problem download the updated libwfb and then copy
it over to your /usr/lib/xorg/modules directory, and then create a new
symbolic link to libwfb.
$ wget http://people.freedesktop.org/~aplattner/wfb/Linux-x86_64/libnvidia-wfb.so.173.08
$ mv libnvidia-wfb.so.173.08 /usr/lib/xorg/modules/
$ sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libnvidia-wfb.so.173.08 /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libwfb.so
Restart xorg and everything should function normally. Enjoy!
