Beware! GTX2 can cause problems

I've started having the same problem: Massive slow down of the whole 
system when I've got GLX2 running.  This was after deleting the 
preferences file.  To try and solve another problem, I was advised to go 
back to the stable version.  After the problem had been resolved, I went 
back to the latest beta and that's when the slow down started.  
Sometimes it gets to the point of being almost unusable.
