Ouch. Any suggestions? Do we go down the path of adding mangled mesa support to 
IceT? Otherwise, we have to give up on mangled mesa alltogether (which would 
make my life sooo much easier :-) ). We would still have an offscreen rendering 
solution. Except, the same executable wouldn't be able to switch between the two.
