Nvidia problems with Xorg: X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window para

I'm running Debian unstable with Xorg 6.8.2, and my problem is that 3D hasn't worked since sometime in August. I do remember something about it not going to work for a while, but now I'm wondering if I've done something wrong and it should be working.

When I run glxgears I get this ouput:

X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 146 (NV-GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 4 ()
Resource id in failed request: 0x2400002
Serial number of failed request: 26
Current serial number in output stream: 26

Anyone got any ideas on how to correct this please?

Additional information that would be useful I suspect:

Kernel: 2.6.14
Nvidia drivers installed with Nvidia's installer.

I am usnig the debian kernel source deb for 2.6.14, and the debian nvidia source deb. The kernel compiles and starts, but nvidia won't load. I've tried both gcc4.0 and gcc3.3 without success.
