Dear all,

I am trying to install paraview such that I can do remote rendering
through python scripting without the time consuming difficulty of
having the render window pop up.  I've compiled mesa with osmesa
support inorder to take advantage of the --use-offscreen-rendering

Everything compiled correctly and things start running but when I try
to write the image I get a segmentation fault.  I started paraview
under gdb and found the source of the segmentation fault when trying
to save an image:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I'm using paraview 3.4 and mesa 7.4 on fedora 10.  Any ideas as to
what's causing this and how to fix it?
