Nvidia driver version mis-match keeps X from running

I am running 6.0.6LTS on an AMD Athlon 1700+ with an Nvidia Gforce4
MX440 PCI. Recently after upgrading via apt-get, I keep having the
following problem even after a complete removal and reinstall via Synaptic.
The Xorg log shows:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Version mismatch detected between the NVIDIA X driver
(EE) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GLX module. X driver version: 1.0-8774; GLX
(EE) NVIDIA(0): version: 1.0-8762. Please try reinstalling the NVIDIA
(EE) NVIDIA(0): driver.
X will not start with "nvidia" as the driver. I am forced to use "nv".
I am also experiencing lock-ups in X when using Firefox. Have to kill X
to fix this.
I don't know why the version mis-match occured. Everything was working
fine up to a few weeks ago.
I usually update when the update icon appears on the top panel in Gnome
and everything works fine.
If this has been answered on this list, my apologies. I can't seem to
find where to search the archives.
