Nope, -noload Welcome doesn't help. Also, I have no issues running 
multiple GL apps. I can launch multiple glxgears processes without issues.

I noticed that there's something else printed before the "unrecognized 
version" errors:

   libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
   libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
   Unrecognized OpenGL version
   Unrecognized OpenGL version

I'm on an NVidia GTX 980 Ti running driver version 352.63.
