Yep, that makes sense.

There was a test case given with the bug that I was able to reproduce.  This
was with the current version of glut (3.7-17) and xlibmesa3 (4.2.1-4 and

Yep, that's what I've thought all along.  I am going to recompile glut
against the new xlibmesa-glu package, and close the bug; if the problem *is*
caused by some screwup somewhere, rebuilding with the new compiler against
the new GLU ought to clean everything up.  (touch wood).  I have never
experienced this bug, although I have been able to reproduce the results
from the example given near the end of the bug report, so I'll just harass
the original submitter to see if they still experience the bug after the
