I'm not sure what you mean by "AIGLX works". How you can test this using nvidia's closed driver package. I haven't tried to restore Xorg's libglx and see if it works with the nvidia driver though, which might be what you are saying.

I find the following helpful in understanding the subject: Communication between Xgl and Xorg
mainly talks about Xgl, but also shows how things look like with AIGLX. The whole confusion comes from the fact that nvidia devs provide their own accelerated indirect GLX implementation via their libglx.so

to nvidia devs: what's the reason behind a custom implementation of the libglx.so? It looks very redundant to me. You must have your reasons.
