Ok, I'll let the X.org maintainers know about this bug.
In the mean time, I found a patch against RealVNC that works around this (by
changing all the bogus visuals). With this, mplayer works perfectly.
Additionally, this includes a patch that fixes GLX support on -depth 24.
I was experiencing crashes of this sort:
name of display: :1.0
X Error of failed request: GLXBadContext
Major opcode of failed request: 150 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
Serial number of failed request: 17
Current serial number in output stream: 17
(Curiously, mplayer -vo gl2 worked while mplayer -vo gl crashed.)
With this patch, all opengl apps work as expected.
Any chance of seeing these fixes make it into RealVNC FE for Unix 4.1.2?
Patch is at http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2005-June/008343.html
