Ugh, I agree this is bad, but not using the wrapper is not the solution, the
wrapper should be fixed. I naively assumed that the nvidea and fglrx drivers
where both using dri as well (I'm pretty sure the fglrx driver is, but I'll 
give it a try).

Can you please attach the output of glxinfo for an nvidia card, then I'll try 
to come up with a fixed version of the script.

Luckily I put the script in a seperate rpm and did not copy and paste it to a
gazillion game packages, cases like this being exactly the reason to have the
script in one central place.
