It would appear so.  After setting that variable above, glxinfo no longer 
throws those two errors.  glxinfo gives me the same set of visuals though, 
including the ones that AIGLX thinks are invalid.  It looks like the ones 
that it thinks are invalid are any of the visuals with double buffering 

At least glxgears doesn't crash the system anymore now that I have 
Mesa-CVS built.
