[compiz] Nvidia 8600 Performance Issue

I'm running a Dell XPS 1530M system with a 2.4 GHz Core 2 duo and
Nvidia 8600M GT 256 MB graphics card with 4 GB RAM and Compiz 0.7.2 on
OpenSuse 10.3 (KDE) with the Nvidia .169.12 drivers.
I have all the usual fixes for Nvidia cards enabled
(ARGB-GLX-visuals, Composite) but Compiz frequently slows down the
system and certain windows take as much as 2 seconds to refresh. The
benchmark tool frequently shows the fps dropping to an unusable 10-12
fps. Enabling animations makes the situation even worse. Performance
is excellent with the KWin window manager.
Is this an nvidia driver issue or a compiz bug? I'm sorry if this
has been asked before but I did not find any FAQ link.
Thanks for your time,
Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the
chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
