Well, can be possible to have a particular case for opengl/ddraw/d3d 
applications (ie. GLX needed applications) ?
As for GLX code is a lot better to have separate X windows (as GLX context is 
per windows).

I was thinking first to force creation on an GLXWindow when first enabling 
openGL, to solve most of the problems of wglShareLists.

Anyway, this don't solve all cases of 2398 bug (only multi windows bugs)
remains intra windows gl contexts
