Well, it's rather trivial, so I could give it a try...

Just one question: I need to wrap two GL calls, to prevent both=20
application and plugin code from triggering the bug. Where is this=20

I think it only happens with the ATI closed source drivers meant for=20
the FireGL 8x00 cards. There are at least two other options for the=20
more common Radeon 8x00 cards AFAIK, and those most probably do not=20
have this bug.

BTW, Xi Graphics' drivers support my card now, but the drivers won't=20
run on my Debian system for unknown reasons. I got the kernel module=20
to load, but the server just quits with a pointless message and no=20
log entries. I'll ask Xi what to do next time I have the time to mess=20
with it.
