I don't disagree that other programs can use it but it took us all a 
while to figure out why the nvidia drivers wasn't working.  When the 
problem started, I checked the things listed on the docs but did not 
know to check this.  This may very well need to be mentioned somewhere 
else but it may need to be mentioned on the nvidia and possibly ATI 
driver docs as well.  This was a hair puller for sure and it is not 
mentioned anywhere in the docs and we all know that Gentoo has some 
awesome docs.

I don't mind filing a bug but wasn't sure if that was what was needed or 
not.  I certainly wouldn't want someone to go through the same as I 
did.  I was starting to look at hardware problems and buying things when 
the fix was found.  Bad thing is, new hardware would have done the same 
thing.
