This log doesn't show X using nv driver. It however shows it is trying to load 
nvidia module twice, succeeding the first and failing the second time. After 
that, there is still line:

(II) NVIDIA X Driver  1.0-7174  Tue Mar 22 06:54:34 PST 2005

which would come from 'nvidia' driver, so it seems to be loaded. This actually 
looks like a log from 'X -configure' run, which would indeed try to load all 
drivers and therefore also 'nv'. It would be more interesting to see log from 
running X server.
How does configuration file (xorg.conf) look like?
