Default NVidia 3D Vision under Linux.

I'm trying to get NVidia 3D Vision working under Linux.

I've got a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (6.1) workstation with two Quadro 5000 cards and the nvidia driver version 270.41.19. The 3D Vision IR emitter is plugged in to both a video card and a USB port,and it glows dull green. I verified that the refresh rate on the monitor is set to 120 Hz. When I launch a stereo application (like glxgears -stereo), the monitor shows a double image, but the emitter doesn't become bright green and the shutter glasses don't respond.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue?

Here's what I've done to get this far:

## from my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
Section "Screen"
        Option "Stereo" "10"
Section "Device"
        Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native"
Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "off"
