No, not in 0.15 if it's built with GL support.  However, I believe this is
fixed in the current CVS, and I was planning on packaging a snapshot again
largely for this bug fix.

Some time back, there was some discussion of tagging a 0.16 release, but
it doesn't look like that happened (or at least the snapshot tree doesn't
reflect it).  Is there still a plan to do that?
