Default drivers 1.0-9631 --> blacks windows in beryl


I hope one day my Geforce accelerate all of the beryl stuff and let my cpu in peace. For the moment, with NVIDIA acceleration, my windows becomes blacks and the tv (nv video) have the colors of a rainbow after one minute of use. I have to use the AIGLX mode in beryl to have normal windows. In this mode beryl is usable with Nvidia but it's cpu intensive. I understood that when the memory video card is full, no more texture could be show then blacks windows appears? That's right? Is there a Xorg option to reduce this bug? This bug will be resolve in a near future?

Thank for your help.

I joined a capture screen where you could see a maximized black window (thunderbird) and kaffeine wich just scratch (same problem with tvtime...).

Debian 4.0, Xorg Release 7.1.1, beryl 1.3 (1539svn), nVidia GeforceFX 5900XT with drivers 1.0-9631, resolution:1650x1080

It seems strange to me that Nvidia+XGL+Beryl (which supposedly uses more video memory) doesn't exhibit this problem, but Nvidia+Xorg+Beryl (which should use less video memory) does.
