There are probably more ways to go about it. The patch below fixes softpipe and r600g. I think we should discuss this and come up with some solution, otherwise Unigine will be broken forever. It doesn't have to be exactly like this patch. I think that if we go with an out-of-spec behavior, we should print a compiler warning at least.

I believe Eric has some patches to work around Unigine as well. Eric?
