there does not seem to be changes for your card (9600GT) between 1.3.30 and 1.3.31 I could see.

If you got your deviceid from the nvidia-settings (and also check the GL renderer string) - I assume you have the nvidia binary driver installed - you can check that the select_card_nvidia_binary function in directx.c chooses the right card.

Since your card is a directx 10 card look at the first "if".
If you look at the end of the if you can see how the 8300GS is chosen as fallback if the GPU is not in the list yet.


    /* Geforce8-compatible fall back if the GPU is not in the list yet */
    return CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCE_8300GS;

Just above that you see how the code expects the "GT 140" or "9600" string in the GL renderer string.


            {"GT 140",      CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCE_9600GT},    /* Geforce 9 - midend */
            {"9600",        CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCE_9600GT},    /* Geforce 9 - midend */
