Testgl causes lockup: problem solved

The cause seems to have been libGL.so. It was originally a link to
libMesaGL.o when I installed Mesa, but it got redirected to NVidia’s
own libGL when I installed the new drivers. Unfortunately, NVidia’s
libGL was intended as a stop gap for XFree86 3.3.5. When I installed XFree86
4.0.1, which has proper OpenGL support, the NVidia libGL
became slightly incompatible.

Thanks for the pointers, folks.
