Default 6111 GLX error

I am using a commercial rendering package Vega Prime in Linux RH9 that was broken by upgrading a GeForce 5900 to a 6800 GT. (Of course there was a driver upgrade from 4996 to 6111. )

The program exits with a GLX error about pixel format with the new card. I can see no errors in X logs. The only difference I see with the new card is in the output of "xdpyinfo" where it states:

number of extensions: 31

With the 5900 installed it reads:

number of extensions: 32

The missing extension is NVIDIA-GLX

glxgears etc work fine and glxinfo reports direct rendering:yes.

Did something change with the GLX system that might have broken this?
