Default X freezes with glx applications

Hi, I just started having an issue with my glx applications (compiz, glxinfo, glxgears, the opengl/glx information tab in nvidia-settings) since updatign my computer. Every time I start one my X hard freezes. I can ssh into my system but X is unresponsive. X is taking up 100pct of the proc according to top, and I cannot kill it, I have to hard reset my comp. Also a note, it was several days after I updated my system before I rebooted and the issues started.

First I removed compiz and its other packages(I'm using gentoo) and then I checked over my Xorg.conf to make sure GLcore and dir were not enabled. I also disabled composite and rebooted.

Also I have tried older versions of nvidia drivers, seeing as my problem started after a world update. Finally I recompiled xorg-X11 and still nothing.

I have searched all over and found nothing but this:

which describes my problem exactly (I get the erronous messages by tailing /var/log/messages from ssh) but my NX/XD bit is off and I am not using hardened sources for my kernel. Also I can find nothing on these forums relating to this problem.

# tail /var/log/messages
