Default MDK 10 problems

Ok, I am on Mandrake 10 Community Edition (2.6.3-4) and I am starting to pull my hair out here.

I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia-driver I could found. (5341)
I've edited the XF86Config-4 as I always do.

I see the nvidia logo on X start up, but the acceleration is working _partially_!!!

Chromium (a 3d demanding shootem-up) runs fluently.
But watch this...
[alex@alkis t]$ glxgears
61 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12.200 FPS
60 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12.000 FPS
67 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13.400 FPS

And please watch this...
[alex@alkis t]$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.3
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce3/AGP/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.4.1 NVIDIA 53.41

I am suspecting that there is a problem with the tls directory in /usr/lib/ but I can't find a solution.

If you are still reading this here what ldd glxgears shows
[alex@alkis t]$ ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears => (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/tls/ (0x4002a000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40088000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40096000) => /lib/tls/ (0x40178000) => /lib/tls/ (0x40188000) => /lib/tls/ (0x401ab000) => /usr/lib/tls/ (0x402f3000) => /lib/ (0x407a9000)
/lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

What REALLY bothers me is that I can't find anything on google! I mean, I can't really be the _only_ mdk10 user with a gf3 and this problem...or can I?

Thanks for reading.
