Good question. I was quite convinced that it did, but I can't have 
tested properly, because when I log into another account now, I find 
that everything is OK. That's a bit embarrassing...

It's not ~/.nvidia-settings-rc, though, as I get this problem even after 
copying the file from a different user (without this problem) or when 
just removing it (and other accounts work just fine without one.) Weird...
