Well, that explains the crappy results on the 10 year old nvidia card
that I pulled out of the recycling bin.

The hardware we really care about is a mix of amd, intel, and nvidia,
some new enough to be well-supported.  Anyway, now I'll run piglit
on everything we actually care about.

My osx 10.9 macbook pro locked up solid running piglit, too, so the fun
is available on muliple platforms.
