Fixed in SVN:

<!-- bnc#809163 -->
<title>The proprietary NVIDIA driver requires users to have access to
/dev/nvidia* devices</title>
<para>
Default and new users are no longer added to the
<literal>video</literal> group automatically. But the proprietary
NVIDIA driver requires users to have access to /dev/nvidia* devices.
</para>
<para>
Because the NVIDIA driver does not use the usual kernel methods that
allow to install ACLs on the device nodes, users have to be added
manually to the <literal>video</literal> group; as
<systemitem>root</systemitem> call (replace <literal>$USER</literal>
with the actual username):
</para>
<screen>usermod -a -G video $USER</screen>
