I don't think it is the kernel you should blame the blame is on Gnome3.
I have a similar setup kernel (3.0 and 3.1) and I see no slow GTK. The
difference is that I use XFCE-4.8 and I have disabled start of Gnome
and KDE services in "Sessions and Startup". It could be interesting to
know whether the same experience applies to your computer?

PS. no Nvidia here. On-board Intel graphics driver.
