sounds convincing. what you mean is to issue the "opengl-update nvidia"
command. i could swear i did so, yet it might still be that i did it
while in X and then the wrong lib would've been already in use - or
even the command might have failed silently. i will have a look at the
rebooting did not solve anything. i would be glad if you have a look
(into bash_history :) on thursday.
the strange thing is that e.g. glxgears works - only gem fails. i've
got no other opengl app installed.

now that last sentence _is_ much help because it gives confidence.
one more question: did you activate DRI in the kernel (i use 2.6.9)?
gentoo docs say "no" while nvidia docs (used to) say "yes".
