Opera and EXA: ``X Shared memory extension is not available''

I've recently switched to Opera 9.5 on Linux, and on both x86 and
AMD64, Opera complains with:

  opera: X Shared memory extension is not available. ZPixmap not supported

Xdpyinfo does show MIT-SHM fine, and xdpyinfo -ext MIT-SHM says

  MIT-SHM version 1.1 opcode: 146, base event: 78, base error: 166
    shared pixmaps: no

which I gather is okay.

Is there anything wrong with EXA and MIT-SHM?  Or is that an Opera issue?
