This issue appears to be caused by installing the NVIDIA binary drivers.  The NVIDIA installer modifies the symlink '/usr/lib64/libGL.so.1' making it point to their (apparently broken) version of that .so file.

Do you get the same crash after running 'glxgears'?

The following resolved this crash for me:
1. Ensure X is using the nouveau driver (not the NVIDIA binary blob) 'sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak'
2. 'sudo rm /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1'
3. 'sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1'
