I see both a OpenGL library error and a Wine error.

Actually I think it is glXQueryVersion that fails... Not 100% sure though.
But OK perhaps it can be caught but the point that
1. Our implementation of OpenGL doesn't work without GLX. Initialization fails
and it returns FALSE.
2. It output confusing messages.
So applying the patch won't break anything. Anybody wishing to make Wine
run OpenGL applications without GLX are welcome to submit additional patches.
