If nVidia's 3D Vision is installed but you turn it off by using the CTRL-T shortcut, the screen gets all jumbled. More explicitly: The screen that should be drawn is reduced to a black square in the top-middle part of the screen over the actual game menu screen. Sometimes there are 3 of those black "screen" offset to the right and left of the middle black screen.

That's the best way I can explain it without using a screenshot.

So, in short, the game is unplayable with 3D vision installed but disabled inside the game. The only way to properly play the game in 2D is to turn off 3D vision from nVidia's control panel.

Although it is not affecting 3D Vision per se, it is a definite flaw since in the older drivers version that behavior wasn't observed.
