Done in r15007:

  • greylisted chipsets are now enabled, you will see a warning similar to this one:
    Warning: vendor 'NVIDIA Corporation' is greylisted,
     you may want to turn off OpenGL if you encounter bugs
  • we test rendering using a hidden temporary opengl window
  • the errors from #1358 are no longer ignored, and should cause the rendering test to fail with a message similar to this one:
    OpenGL test rendering failed:
     OpenGL RGBX paint error: GLError(
     	err = 1281,
     	description = 'invalid value',
     	baseOperation = glClear,
     	cArguments = (116384,)

And opengl should be disabled on those broken chipsets.
