[Bug-gnubg] Vsync?

Guys, we've gotten to the bottom of something with GNUBG and Nvidia cards.

I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out why my supposedly blazing fast new 8800 card could only get 60fps in the Test Performance in the game. I then got on the Rage3D forums and finally got some Nvidia guys looking at this (I've been ATI forever) and they nailed the issue. By default gamers have Vsync set to Application Preference. Due to an issue in Flight Simulator it's recommended to set it to FORCE OFF. When I do that with GNUBG my performance shoots through the roof to 200fps (and more) and it plays smooth as glass. With that set to app preference even at 60fps the dice rolls and movement are choppy about 40% of the time.

After testing a bit it seems the program is forcing Vsync ON.

Is this accurate and, if so, is there a reason for it? Can we get an option that allows the app to turn it off so that I don't have to force it off?

It might also be helpful of Test Performance were enhanced a bit to bring up its own screen to explain some things that are addressed and other things that can be done to help improve performance. If I were pointed to Vsync I could have save a lot of poking around for a long time.
