Default OpenGL applications won't run, or they crash or freeze X server

Everytime I open Googleearth, the Googleearth splash appears and then the whole desktop locks up (can't even change VT or do CTRL+ALT+Backspace to restart the Xserver), requiring a hard reboot. If I am lucky enough to have not clicked anywhere on the desktop after it has frozen, I can do CTRL+ALT+F1 and run top. Sometimes, XOrg and compiz.real are redlining my CPU.

If I then change back to my frozen X display from the terminal (CTRL+ALT+F7, or whatever VT the Xserver happens to be running on), the Googleearth splash appears as a white box and the desktop is responsive again (but Googleearth doesn't load). If I close the 'frozen' Googleearth, X crashes completely, taking me back to a login screen again.

If I turn Compiz off, Googleearth runs fine.

Running glxgears also sometimes causes the desktop to freeze. Switching to a terminal and running top show Xorg and compiz.real redlining the CPU. However, sometimes glxgears doesn't cause X to freeze, but I get the following error instead:

Code:
name of display: :0.0
X Error of failed request:  GLXBadDrawable
  Major opcode of failed request:  128 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  24
  Current serial number in output stream:  24
Locking assertion failure.  Backtrace:

I've attached the nvidia-bug-report.log. Note, I ran nvidia-bug-report.sh from a terminal after running Googleearth (causing the Xserver to lock up completely).

Default Re: OpenGL applications won't run, or they crash or freeze X server

See my thread at

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=110029

and what i did: I added Option "UseCompositeWrapper" "true" to the device section in xorg.conf. This works with the 169.xx and newer generation of drivers. And turn Compiz on again. Please let the forum and me know if this has helped!

If this option fixes these issues, I hope the forum moderators will put it finally in their FAQ to use this option in the case of crashes.

Thanks for that - it worked a treat

What I've also noticed, is that the crash doesn't occur if I disable anti-aliasing in nvidia-settings (but that's not really a solution, as I hate the jagged edges in Compiz without it)
