Default [GNOME] gnome-shell/mutter/clutter unusably SLOW: 173xx

gnome-shell/mutter/clutter are unusably slow on nvidia 173xx.

Please, fix the problem, the system is completely unusable and that is a very common problem.

Default Re: [GNOME] gnome-shell/mutter/clutter unusably SLOW: 173xx

My configuration:

GeForce FX5200
nvidia 173.14.31
xorg 1.10.4
clutter 1.7.90
mutter 3.1.91
gnome-shell 3.1.91
totem 3.1.91

Many users reported this problem before and no known workaround works.
Try to launch mutter or totem or gnome-shell or cheese or anything-using-clutter and see it for yourself. I'm sure all of the nvidia 173xx users can confirm the issue.

Up.

I would like to point out that nouveau driver works pretty well.
I really do NOT understand why the 173xx should not.

Your card doesn't require it!

96xx performs just worse.
Only the latest driver has the fix for gnome-shell/mutter/...
