Comment(by jnettlet):

 This is a good test, but has the same problem early DRI drivers had.  With
 no command verifier it makes it very easy for someone to write a malicious
 program that causes the machine to hang.  Simple fixes are nice but we
 have to take into account the ramifications of the changes, and that is
 that anything run as the olpc user can send ioctl's to 3d engine and cause
 a lockup.
