I'd guess you don't have hardware GL support.  Like most 3D apps it
doesn't achieve much of a framerate on a 2D only system.  But a hard
lock implies nastiness that needs to be tracked down, probably something
X related being pushed too hard trying to keep up.

What does the video configuration look like on this machine?  Do other
stressful video tasks blow up and are they all problems with GL apps? 
How about video playback?
