I think it's just that we're trying to use OpenGL on many machines that would 
otherwise not use it and therefore finding all of the old or otherwise broken 
drivers or misconfigurations or problematic hardware.

For anybody with an Optimus setup or running with an Intel GPU on Windows, 
please try updating your drivers as they have improved very rapidly in the 
last 12 months or so.
