Indeed very interesting.

I also regularly build VTK against mesa from git. The OSMesa
driver was just switched to the Gallium llvmpipe driver which is
built for speed.

As a plus with Gallium I can set a shell variable to change the
OSMesa driver at runtime to the softpipe driver which is built
for correctness.

I've already been able to tell the Mesa developers that a VTK
test passes with Gallium on NV95 (err whatever my graphics card
is) and Gallium softpipe, but fails with gallium llvmpipe whether
or not OSMesa is used.

I will be _very_ interested in tomorrow's dashboard.
