git n00b failure. :( I have an uncommitted change in my tree that makes
the check actually work.
+ glarray->Ptr < ptr ||
Without this, piles of piglit tests fail because the data is interleaved
in the opposite order from what the fast path can handle... basically
making more instances of the original bug.
I also think this addition covers the case you're concerned about. Yeah?

Yeah, I like that.
