Default NVIDIA driver will not work with latest Fedora 15 Gnome Shell

Fedora released Firefox 5.0 along with a recompiled Gnome Shell that linked against js instead of xulrunner.

The end result is that gnome-shell will not start. I can downgrade to the older gnome-shell, gjs, firefox, and xulrunner packages as a workaround for the time being.

Using the nouveau driver, I can use the latest packages without a problem.

When using the NVIDIA driver I get the following from gnome-shell:
Code:
(gnome-shell:3985): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to
find suitable fbconfig for the GLX context
Window manager error: Unable to initialize Clutter.
Affected packages:
gnome-shell-3.0.2-3.fc15
gjs-0.7.14-6.fc15
firefox-5.0-1.fc15
xulrunner-5.0-2.fc15

Affected NVIDIA drivers:
270.41.19
275.09.07
