What if you set `MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.2` in the environment?
Something causes a request of a compat profile when on VNC. This tells
Mesa to claim it has a compat profile at 3.2 (this profile is
technically missing old functions, but VTK doesn't need them anyways).

You can see that a compat profile was requested here.
