Default nvidia-setting and glxgears

I noticed a strange issue with nvidia-settings and glxgears. After logging into gdm, glxgears returns correct results, e.g. 23210 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4641.924 FPS for my 8400M GS with NVIDIA Driver 256.25 and compositing off. Once nvidia-settings has been invoked, the reported frame rate drops enormously, e.g. 300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.895 FPS. However, direct rendering is still enabled,

$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes

which is puzzling.
