@Henri: Thanks for the explanation about the difference of wglGetProcAddress
and glXGetProcAddress, I wasn't aware that the Windows version works more
reliable, which explains why you would like to keep this part. Do you see
any other chance to implement a more general detection which functions are
available, than to rely on the extension string? Analyzing thunk wrappers,
or doing a test call with exception handler would probably work, but sounds
a bit too ugly. :/

@Alexandre: Just to make sure I tested it in practice, and it indeed solves
the bug. It would be acceptable but 1.8, but wouldn't solve for example. I am aware that
its technically not a Wine bug, but it could still be solved by being less
strict with extension filtering. Both MESA and NVIDIA return valid valid
function pointers in this case.
