            Well, this turned out to be a technical difficulty. I discovered that
    the same code worked great on my home machine. This confused me as I
    thought I was running exactly the same configurations on both machines.

            Turns out that the Mesa rpm, labeled as being 3.1 on the "bad" machine,
    was in fact a Mesa 3.0.99 distribution.. whereas my installation at home
    was a real 3.1. So in this case, the one hundredth of a revision made
    the difference.

            I upgraded this machine to a solid 3.1 Mesa distribution and XForms
    0.89 and all is fine.

            Thanks for the quick reply though,
