Hi Neal,
Okay, how about this.  Instead of rebooting in the last step, run
init 5
This should get you back into graphical mode.  This assumes that you
did an "init 3" to get out of graphical mode.  Or if you use startx,
then just run that.  Whenever I have updated the nVidia driver, I just
do this, there is no reason to reboot.  So perhaps it does something
when the module is first loaded (like rectify the udev stuff).  If
this doesn't help, please let us know.  Perhaps you should send us
your xorg.conf as well (though if it is working for the old version,
it should work for the new).
