Default Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis

I have done a in-depth study of the problem. Let me clear some stuff up.
- The artifacts appear when using the nvidia driver, they do not appear with the nv driver.
- This happens with the default Feisty 9631 drivers and with the latest (9755) drivers downloaded from the nVidia website.
- Disabling the composite extension does not affect the results.
- Using Option "RenderAccel" "false" fixes the artifacs.

When I run glxgears with the nv drivers everything is smooth. With the nvidia drivers the gears are very choppy and are not rendered correctly. The only way I was able to get them to render correctly with the nvidia driver is if I resize the window until the gears are so large that it lowers the framerate down to a halt. With about 1 frame per second or less the gears were rendered smooth and appeared correct to me.

I have attached some screenshots, logs, and reports.

Thank you.
