Blender 2.70 not showing solid shaded objects in 3D-view...

When solid shading is selected I get this…

And when I select wireframe I can see all objects.

I have also tried 2.63a with the same result

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650Ti 2GB (GV-N65TOC-2GI)

Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.54-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1:1.0.1-5


I tried this…sudo apt-get remove blender
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then I restarted the computer, and reinstalled blender from wheezy repository sudo apt-get install blender

But problem persists…

I started blender from console and got thisAL lib: UpdateDeviceParams: Failed to set 44100hz, got 48000hz instead

Blender quit

which was not particularly helpful in this case…

Any suggestion what to look for is greatly appreciated.

Problem disappeared yesterday after I reinstalled Debian.

I now use nvidia proprietary driver, and not nouveau.
