Default Glxgears accelerating after switching to another tab

Something interesting is happening on my system:

I start glxgears from a kde-terminal which has several opened tabs. The fps count shows:

5883 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1176.478 FPS
5738 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1147.555 FPS
5866 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1173.144 FPS
5669 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1133.711 FPS
5893 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1178.452 FPS

As soon as I switch to another tab and back again, the counting rises about 50%:

8540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1707.828 FPS
8523 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1704.564 FPS
8568 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1713.282 FPS
8553 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1710.548 FPS
8554 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1710.676 FPS

This behaviour repeatable! No other switching and no other activity causes this acceleration. It has to be a terminal with tabs.

My system consists of:

- AthlonXP 2600
- GeForce FX 5200
- Ubuntu Edgy
- Kernel 2.6.18.3
- NVidia 1.0-9629

Did I install the wrong driver?
