Thanks Aaron and thanks also to Benny for the advice.  Rebuilding
the kernel solved the problem and now I can start X with 295.20.

But why did this work?  Nvidia-drivers builds its own kernel module
and just installs it with the other kernel modules.  I did not
get a new kernel source for this rebuild; I just used the one
I already had (3.2.1).  What happened during the rebuilding to
change the new kernel?
