Summary: Several X11 applications fail with error GLXBadContext
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: i686
OS/Version: openSUSE 12.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: bnc-team-xorg-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

On a freshly installed system running Xfce, several X11 applications (totem,
gnibbles, quadrapassel) fail to start with an error like:

(quadrapassel:1410): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'quadrapassel' received an X
Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'GLXBadContext'.
(Details: serial 161 error_code 169 request_code 153 minor_code 6)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Hardware is a Panasonic Toughbook CF-18D, with an integrated Intel graphics

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM
Integrated Graphics Device [8086:3582] (rev 02)

'drm' and 'i915' messages from dmesg:

[drm] Driver supports precise vblank timestamp query.

I noticed the following error message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, don't know if it
is related:

(II) glamor: OpenGL accelerated driver based.
(II) glamor: EGL version 1.4 (DRI2):
(EE) intel(0): Failed to create EGL context
(WW) intel(0): glamor detected, failed to initialize egl.
