You're clearly not using the nvidia driver.
That's what I originally thought, too, but:
From the xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce 8800 GTS"
From the Xorg.0.log:
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
        compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
        Module class: X.Org Video Driver
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) at PCI:5:0:0 (GPU-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 327680 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 60.80.0d.00.01
(II) NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 16X
(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce 8800 GTS at PCI:5:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(0):     NVIDIA TV Encoder (TV-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0):     BenQ FP937s (DFP-1)
And also:
$ps -A | grep X
8512 tty7     00:00:37 Xorg
$sudo lsof -p 8512
Xorg    8512 root  mem    REG        3,3  1372296    1433750 /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
And also:
$ lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia               7250420  34
Are you 100% sure I'm not using the NVidia driver? If not, what do I need to change to use it? It looks to me like xorg.conf is configured correctly.
Mr Flibble's very cross.
