I haven't run glxgears, but the Xorg log would indicate that they were
loaded successfully. Mythfrontend logs indicate that it is working. I do
get glx effects in the menu. So by all acounts I assume it working fine.

Version 9746, and UseEvents is enabled. It makes no difference on my 5200
but makes a big difference on the 6100.

Option "NoLogo" "true"
#Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "UseEvents" "true"
Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
Modeline "720p" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723
728 748 -hsync +vsync
Modes "720p" "800x600" "640x480"
