No problem with snv_38, but encountered a "hard" problem using snv_39. I will
try to go further tonight and let you see the result, if any.

Update #1: Commenting the line which load the GLX module (in the xorg.conf file)
do the trick here. FYI, here are the correponding error lines in the Xorg.0.log
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
(EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.

Update #2: Following the X Window mailing list about this problem, it seems that
this is a known problem already tracked. Here is the corresponding link with
a workaround in order to be able to use OpenGL (be careful not to break anything):
