No libkse here.

I don't actively use OpenGL, though I do use things that the accelerated
nvidia driver performs better with than the nv driver (mplayer,
switching virtual desktops in Enlightenment, general use of E with all
of the fancy settings turned to maximum). I'll try the nv driver and
report on whether it has the same problem.

I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated".  -- Ken Thompson
