Bug Description

Running Ubuntu Feisty, but this also happened on Edgy (Dapper worked fine).

Every OpenGL-app/game i try is very slow and lags.
(glxgears is the only thing that works fine)

It's a bit difficult to describe, but it's like running UT2004 on a C64.

It's a barebone laptop from AOpen (1559-AS: http://solution.aopen.com.tw/Products/nb/1559-as.htm)
GFX: NVidia Geforce 6600GO
CPU: Intel Pentium M processor 1.73GHz
RAM: 1,5 gb
Nvidia driver from the latest restricted-modules, but this also applies to 9746 and 9629 with 2.6.17+ kernels.

Here's a benchmark from the game Xmoto:

UT2004 actually runs perfectly with around 120FPS

So it can't be the nvidia-driver that's causing this.(?)

A bit slow?

Beryl and Compiz works as they should if I set sync to VBlank under opengl settings in nvidia-settings

I changed from the *-generic kernel to *-386 and everything works as it should!
