Default Gnome3 with composite is very slow on Geforce FX 5200 with 173.14.31 driver

I have a problem with openSUSE 12.1 and my Geforce FX 5200. When using the 173.14.31 driver from the official repository( G01 packages), my gnome3 shell( is very slow. It starts already on the login screen which is nearly unresponsive. It takes at least 20 seconds until I get prompted for my password after clicking on my username. also everything else I do later is very slow.
When I disable composite(nvidia-xconfig --no-composite), the slowness is gone and it performs mostly fine, but ofc I cant get the nice gnome3 shell running then.
My Computer is a Pentium3 1000MHz with 512MB ram and the above mentioned Geforce FX 5200 in a 4xAGP slot. xorg-x11-server=7.6_1.10.4-36.2.1, gome-shell=, linux=3.1.10-1.9-default
I then tried to use the nvidia driver installer as linked on their website( with the same effect. And last, also the latest prerelease driver for my gpu( has the same problem.
