Default Incorrect gtk rendering & sluggish compiz animations with 256.44

I use geforce 9500m with 64-bit ubuntu 10.10.

The system is very sluggish and unresponsive comparing to prior experience with the 195 series. Compiz animations stutter and window contents are being drawn slowly. Moreover, there are elements the system fails to paint correctly with the nvdia driver (probably gradient-related):

1. Selected menu items and progress bars are brighter then they should be.

2. The lovely glowing dots below docky icons, which mark which app is being ran, become large, ugly grey blobs.

Screenshots are found in the ubuntu bug report (, but I fear this is an nvidia issue since the incorrect rendering goes away with nouveau. Is there a solution to this problem? if not, is there a way to install the 195 driver again?
