Default 7676 driver bug?

I've installed enough NVIDIA drivers to know what I'm doing but this new driver has me puzzled. Prior to installing driver 76.76 I had 76.67 running perfectly except for what I noticed as slower OpenGL performance. Anyway after installing and configuring my driver with sax2 I rebooted the system. Once logged in I ran "glxinfo" in a Terminal which produced:


name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual

Segmentation fault


I also confirmed "nv" not "nvidia" is listed in YAST graphics hardware for my MSI Geforce 6600 GT graphics card. Question is why is this release more buggy than the last as it was to resolve bugs, not create new ones? Also why is a segmentation fault indicated when I ran "glxinfo"? System specs below.
