I think the probem in X Windows itself, I think, there is no way for me to confirm this though. I normally compile my Nvidia drivers myself, but for an experiment, 	I decided to try to install the drivers from rpmfusion. When I did that I could not get Desktop Effects with opengl. I reinstalled all the xorg server stuff and still nada. When  I removed rpmfusion drivers and reinstalled the drivers that come from Nvidia directly everything was OK.
