I think this is expected behaviour.
GLX consists of three parts:
- An API that provides OpenGL functions to an X Window System
- An extension of the X protocol, which allows the client (the
OpenGL application) to send 3D rendering commands to the X server
(the software responsible for the display). The client and server
software may run on different computers.
- An extension of the X server that receives the rendering commands
from the client and either passes them on to a hardware-accelerated
3D graphics card or renders them in software, usually using the
Mesa library (which is much slower).
Assuming that 3rd component is running I think the video hardware on
the FE will be updating the menus, rendering then unavailable to the
