 No, i can/could run ZSNES, NEStopia, and friends that use OpenGL. I just
 locked it up again by running BouncingCows from the Preview mode in
 xscreensaver-demo. I had mouse, but no keyboard, so i couldn't ALT-TAB into a
 terminal and kill it. Previously, i ran the same screensaver with TrueColor as
 the visual and it didn't lock up. The strange thing is that the system seems
 otherwise active. If i have a pkgsrc build running, it continues; it's just
 that the screen is frozen.

 The Visual option can be changed in the Advanced tab of each program. 
 Yes, changing visualID: GL would work. Check the Advanced tab to see if it's
 changed after restarting xscreensaver-demo. If that fails, each line after
 "programs:" starts with a visualID. You can change any one of those to "GL" to
 test it.
