Not quite, what you see is that code kicked in that prevented your desktop from becoming unusable due to bad video drivers (too little frames being rendered for compositing to be useful).

The nvidia driver still has grave performance problems, even my integrated intel chip feels faster than my desktop's 7600GS. I know it's frustrating for users, but we (KDE) decided to not paper over driver bugs so they eventually get fixed and don't stand in the way anymore in the future.
