Default Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT is slow with KDE 4.1 - even with fix

I am using openSuSE 11 and I have the latest drivers (177.80), latest kernel 2.6.27-rc8-14, latest KDE 4.1 from Factory repo, and latest Qt from repo.

I have also tried the performance fix that everyone suggests I do (Add the pixmap and shm options in xorg, use the nvidia-settings command) and KDE 4.1 is still dirt slow to repaint parts of the screen. And what's even more infuriating is that the xserver for some reason seems to be waiting for MOUSE MOVEMENT when it wants to repaint. Progressbars will completely stop unless I keep moving the mouse cursor over it. Websites will not load unless I move the mouse over it. The little placement bar next to plasma widgets will not fade in or out unless I move the mouse over the desktop. Yakuake will not slide in or out unless I move the mouse around.

...you get the idea. How the hell do I fix this? This is absolutely infuriating. I reinstalled with GNOME and KDE 3 before, but I just can't stand it. I want to use KDE 4.1. Please help.

Use a stable system. Might be some qt glitches.
