Actually, it seems to get its front and back buffers confused in most

I decided to take the latter approach. I've attached the test program.
The redisplay handler selects the back buffer for drawing, clears the
buffer, draws a red rectangle on the back buffer, then swaps the
The 'f' key draws a yellow rectangle to the front buffer.
The 'b' key draws a green rectangle to the back buffer.
The 's' key calls glutSwapBuffers().
The 'r' key calls glutPostRedisplay();
Running without DRI (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1) results in the expected
behaviour, while using the G400 DRI doesn't. I can't identify the
exact pattern, other than that it appears that calls to glDrawBuffer
sometimes work and sometimes don't. E.g. pressing 'f' once or twice
doesn't result in the yellow rectangle appearing, but the third press
