ATI Radeon VE and OpenGL

I'm having a problem with a program I wrote using OpenSceneGraph and OpneGL.
The program builds a 3D tree of arrows with n branches from each parent
branch and m levels of branching.

Note: what I call a branch, other often call a subtree. Birds don't sit on
subtrees, they sit on branches.

When I build the tree with more than 3 levels of branching, it locks up then
either fails like a nice application and gives me back my display, or locks
up various subsystems sometimes to the point where the only option is the
on/off I/O device, i.e., can't ssh in.

The program runs fine on XP.

On SuSE 9.2, running on the same box, I receive the following errors:
"Warning... Video Sync not working correctly" (from Producer) and
"radeonWaitIrq: drmRadeonIrqWait: -16" from who knows.

One suggestion I received was that I might have something from Mesa installed
that I don't need. Is there such thing as a Mesa video driver that could be
substituted with an ATI driver?

Here's all the relevant configuration info I can think of. The box is a P4
2.4 with an intel MB, and a gig of RAM. Not that the fglrx README does not
specifically name my hardware as supported, but the problem happens whether
that is installed or not. Any suggestions as to what I might to to fix this?
