Running kde 4.11 under arch with nvidia 320.x series driver. Whenever I reboot/logout, then login to kde vsync syncs to 100hz (my monitor only supports 60hz) causing tearing regardless of which vsync method is chosen. The only way to resolve the issue is to change the compositor type opengl 2.0 > 3.0 or vice versa, or turn off vsync and then turn vsync back on. After doing so the fps applet reports a proper 60hz sync and tearing stops. After enabling the fps applet and testing a few scenarios it appears to startup at the proper 60hz, then about 20 seconds later it shoots to 100hz and doesnt get resolved until the steps mentioned above..
After some googling it appears this user using opensuse /nvidia is having the exact same problem.
I do not have this issue with my desktop running built in intel graphics.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System with nvidia drivers with proper vsync settings
2. Either logout or reboot system
vsync syncs to 100hz rather then the set refresh rate until you disable re-enable vsync in settings.
vsync should always sync to set refresh rate.
Tearing prevention is just disabled.

Thanks Thomas! I am glad it has already been addressed, now for wait.
