In any case, uninstalling and re-installing won't hurt and it might solve your problem. You do load the wrong extension, even though ls seems to indicate otherwise.
UPDATE: remove /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a or move it to another directory and try running glxgears again. That should probably do it.
root@aribeth:~# cd /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions
root@aribeth:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions# mv libglx.a a.xlgbil
That's what I did, then started X with the given config file. glxgears ran. Full screen, average 370 FPS. I know I can tweak that by not running gnome, probably a couple other tweaks here and there, however that's not the point - point is that the problem's fixed.
