Yeah, I can't comment on the first issue, but the second is definitely the notorious BWB. Just like compiz and beryl, the OpenGL backend for the KDE4 compositor uses GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.

I'm not sure there really is a fix, per se. Generally, newer versions of the driver resolved that issue for *most* compiz/nvidia users. I know that in compiz, using the --indirect-rendering would often reduce the chances of hitting that bug in the driver, but I don't know if there's a way to force indirect rendering for kwin.
