[abrt] crash in glx-utils-7.7-4.fc12: Process /usr/bin/glxgears was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process /usr/bin/glxgears was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
I have an x86_64 CentOS 5 machine running VirtualBox 3.16. The machine has an ATI Radeon HD 2600XT and I use the proprietary drivers. Glxgears works fine on it (the host).
I have Fedora 12 (x86_64) installed as a VirturalBox guest. The VirtualBox guest additions are installed, which should provide 3D acceleration support. When I execute glxgears in the Fedora 12 guest, it crashes.
How to reproduce
1. Execute the glxgears command from a konsole.

vboxvideo bug, not Mesa bug
Same as bug 603569, http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/7061
Closing this ticket since this appears to be an issue with VirtualBox instead of Fedora. In Noel Duffy's VirtualBox bug ticket, <http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/7061>, the user "galalleni" wrote, "Same issue here. It appears that the system is using Mesa's libGL (which is v7.8) instead of the libGL Vbox uses (v7.2) - that's why this error is occurring."
I'm going to look over there to see if there is a way to make VirtualBox use the same Mesa libGL.
