Yes you're right. Man why I didn't see it before - nvidia is so great.
I should have considered it before: The application which requests text-rendering is the problem, not the driver/hw actually doing the job worng. I write trolltech that they should remove all text rendering needs out of QT and use smbols instead.

There are several things which could be done:

1.) Batch drawing commands a bit and try to readback larger areas. This would help programs with a lot of text (konsole, kwrite).

2.) Provide accaleration for boards capable of executing shaders (FX5200 and up). This would be a very good long-term solution however I doubt lower-end cards (FX5200, GF6200) will benefit a lot.
