From the NVIDIA README (
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "boolean"
Enables GLX even when the Composite X extension is loaded. ENABLE AT
YOUR OWN RISK. OpenGL applications will not display correctly in many
circumstances with this setting enabled. Default: GLX is disabled when
Composite is loaded.
XVideo and the Composite X extension
XVideo will not work correctly when Composite is enabled. See Appendix
Appendix S. The X Composite Extension
X.org version X11R6.8.0 contains experimental support for a new X protocol
extension called Composite. This extension allows windows to be drawn into
pixmaps instead of directly onto the screen.
In other words, the entire README (and your X logs) is, basically,
saying to turn off the Composite extension.
Remove the line
Option "Composite" "Enable"
And, if you leave an empty "Extensions" section, take it out, too.
