[Paraview] Problem with remote display (Exceed)

I'm trying to run ParaView 1.8.5[1] on a Linux-machine.
When I start ParaView locally at the machine it works, but when I
start it over the Network (the DISPLAY is my Windows-machine with
Exceed 9.0) the Splash-Screen appears and then ParaView stops. The
only message in the Terminal is

[bgschaid at gcdw89 ~]$ paraview
X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  139 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  21 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  1086
  Current serial number in output stream:  1086
[bgschaid at gcdw89 ~]$

I'm using the precompiled binaries.

Obviously there seems to be problem with OpenGL-Acceleration. I tried
the --use-software-rendering switch, but this doesn't make any

Is there a chance, that I can make this problem go away by recompiling
ParaView? Or is there any other way to fix this?

[1]  The same thing happened with older versions too.
