I have found that in some cases piglit-dispatch can fail. This means it's a
good idea to check all cases. Anyways, Have you verified that the test
works with OpenGL on windows?

Anyways, in one case where the piglit dispatcher can fail where the Core
Context fails to be created, and when trying to work with the similar
compatibility context the system fails to load extensions. A good example
of this is if you Prefer OpenGL 3.1 ( Core ) but it fails, and have the
Compatibility context set to OpenGL 3.1.
