The game is working perfectly.  Thank you all for the help with locating
this issue.  I have documented it in the Debian bugtracker, maybe we will be
able to push the fixed driver for the next stable point release.

Otherwise, it might be worth noting in a FAQ somewhere (64-bit Linux ATI
fglrx 10-9 is incompatible with Aquaria and some other OpenGL applications).
