Ouch.  I'm pretty sure you've hit the undocumented hardware bug I
discovered a few years ago.

The STATE_BASE_ADDRESS "Dynamic State Access Upper Bound" field is
supposed to be ignored when it is zero, but the sampler border color
access apparently fails to do so.  So the address gets clamped.

Program that to a proper value (or 0xFFFFFFFF) and I bet it will work.

See c25e5300cba7628b58df93ead14ebc3cc32f338c in the GL driver.

Sorry for not thinking to warn you sooner :(
