Default horrible 2D performance

Hello,

I run a ubuntu breezy box with a 2.6.14 kernel patched with the archk7 patches.
I have compiled the latest NVIDIA driver and this one gives me a horrible 2d performance. (both with renderaccel enabled and disabled)
Everything feels very unsnappy. So I ran gtkperf to see if this issue was real, and this is what I got:

nv X.org driver:

GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Wed Jan 4 23:56:11 2006

GtkEntry - time: 0,12
GtkComboBox - time: 2,56
GtkComboBoxEntry - time: 2,34
GtkSpinButton - time: 0,33
GtkProgressBar - time: 0,17
GtkToggleButton - time: 0,97
GtkCheckButton - time: 0,89
GtkRadioButton - time: 0,99
GtkTextView - Add text - time: 2,13
GtkTextView - Scroll - time: 1,13
GtkDrawingArea - Lines - time: 0,28
GtkDrawingArea - Circles - time: 0,69
GtkDrawingArea - Text - time: 4,67
GtkDrawingArea - Pixbufs - time: 1,00
---
Total time: 18,28

latest nvidia driver:

GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Wed Jan 4 23:54:03 2006

GtkEntry - time: 0,16
GtkComboBox - time: 3,03
GtkComboBoxEntry - time: 3,10
GtkSpinButton - time: 0,40
GtkProgressBar - time: 0,26
GtkToggleButton - time: 1,09
GtkCheckButton - time: 0,94
GtkRadioButton - time: 1,07
GtkTextView - Add text - time: 2,05
GtkTextView - Scroll - time: 1,22
GtkDrawingArea - Lines - time: 0,30
GtkDrawingArea - Circles - time: 0,61
GtkDrawingArea - Text - time: 1,37
GtkDrawingArea - Pixbufs - time: 0,49
---
Total time: 16,11

Alltogether, the nv driver renders everything faster exept Text and Pixbufs.
Can that be?

Im looking forward to reading some suggestions...

Greetings, Max
