Default Geforce 6200 random screen corruption / glitches

Hi users and devs,

My Geforce 6200 is never worked properly in my box.

I have found there are three problem (don't know if they are related?)
* Screen corupption (see the screen cap below)
* glxinfo looks properly, but glxgears report 20 ~ 60fps and slow down the system radically.
* random lockup (recoverable with ssh and killall -9 X)

I'm not using compiz / xgl stuff.
Distro: Gentoo 2.6.18-gentoo-r6 / 2.6.20-gentoo-r8
nvidia-drivers-1.0.8776 / 9755

I've tried turn on / off FastWrite / SBA
Switch AGP rate betwen 2x / 4x.
I've also swtich between agpgart / NvAGP

But the situation does not get better.

I found one interesting thing, the corruption never appears within
the gnome-terminal window. but on the desktop / other gtk apps / OOo / Acrobat reader

And screen captures showing the problem.

Usually the screen corruption will be cleared when I switch desktop.
But appear again after a short period.

In some apps, the behavior appears more serious. (eg: or Acrobat Read)
