FWIW, I tried another X server...VcXsrv?...
Same with that program.

I tried several, got some that worked, most didn't.

Of the few that worked 'well' remotely, they were variations
on the glgears... got about 400-500 FPS -- and about low 300's MB/s
in bandwidth consumed... that sounds about right... but I think
there are other problem in trying to get a remote desktop to work
now... everything wants to connect to the session bus -- and many progs
won't start if they can't.  So if I can't figure out a way to
get that to work, remote usage is left at a fairly primitive level
despite the high frame rates on a 3"x4" window... ;-)

One of the demo progs said it required opengl 2.1 .. my card has V4.something.
well above 2.1, so that seems like another latent problem.

Will look for the fixed version ...

thanks for the news...
