Extract from /var/log/aptitude:
Now I'm using:
paul@raring-64:~$ grep -i nvidia /var/log/aptitude
[UPGRADE] nvidia-current-updates:amd64 304.51-0ubuntu1 -> 304.64-0ubuntu1
paul@raring-64:~$ uname -a
Linux raring-64 3.7.0-030700rc4-generic #201211041435 SMP Sun Nov 4 19:35:50 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
EDIT: Originally when all this trouble started I pinned nvidia-current to 304.51.really.304.43-0ubuntu2, but I ended up removing nvidia-current and installing nvidia-current-updates instead.
