Thanks, TobiSGD! That did the trick and it shows I am still using the nvidia drivers,

me@thebar:~$ glxinfo|grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GT 520/PCIe/SSE2
    GL_NV_compute_program5, GL_NV_conditional_render, 
    GL_NV_parameter_buffer_object2, GL_NV_path_rendering, 
    GL_NVX_conditional_render, GL_NVX_gpu_memory_info,
so I don't know why others are having troubles with theirs after the xorg upgrade the other day.

Performance, just because it says all is good doesn't mean everything renders properly. I just installed AMD Drivers for my good old Radeon HD4650 and all hell has broken loose.

Now things are really interesting...troubleshooting is in my immediate future : )
