I installed accelerated nvidia graphics drivers according to this tutorial http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2013/fedora-18-nvidia-guide/ and it worked great when logging in directly. However it seems to break my ability to remote login using xrdp since the most trivial operations causes crashes.

Is it possible to somehow force XRDP to somehow use the old drivers for remote sessions and still have acceleration for local logins? Here are some of the messages /var/log/messages about how the gnome desktop complains about missing gl extensions which are missing on the remote screen.
