The proprietary NVIDIA driver is not allowed to call device_create() etc in the
kernel because that is a GPL only symbol. So there will be no udev event for
that device. AFAIK the X server just runs an mknod when starting. So the only
chance to get this handled by udev would be to find a way to fake the device
event. If thats not possible udev rules have no effect.

Anyways, Thorsten, since it looks like we cannot find a quick solution could
you please submit a shadow update for 12.3 that readds the video group?
