It is not "unusable". But nx offers an old version of GLX only. And
there seem to be some applications that don't care for the version the
X server (nxagent in this case) reports. So what should we do?

It is possible to implement a newer GLX version but that would need
some investing quite some time. Unfortunately the current nx
development staff does not have that time...

Regarding Thunderbird: does it still crash after setting
gfx.xrender.enabled to true in about:config (respectively user.js)?
