Conal, I tried this today on a VirtualBox VM running the same versions
as Mark Wassell, and it worked for me... I wonder, though, if perhaps
GLUT is not getting a GLX (or direct) video context on your machine
for some reason. That has caused some of my GLUT programs to die in
the past, no matter the language. Have you tried using the GLUT
library from a C program to see if you get the same error?
