I was pointed to a potential solution, which has worked well enough in 
an evening of testing that I'm going to subject my internal OS disk to it:

Update to 10.6.7, let it install all its normal updates beyond that, 
then overwrite the GeForce* and NVDA* kexts in 
/System/Library/Extensions/ from the 2011 MBP-specific 10.6.7 update 
(requires extracting the kexts from the install package (I used 
Pacifist), as the disk image's own installer will balk at other models). 
I then booted in Safe Mode to get the kext cache fixed up, then booted 
normally and my combination of MythTV and other acceleration-dependent 
software was smooth on dual displays.

Maybe this will work for you, too.
