As Matthew indicated, your GLX version is 1.3, which is new enough. So
either we've introduced a dependency in our native Solaris code on OpenGL
1.3 (which wouldn't surprise me at all, since we haven't run anything on
Solaris OpenGL 1.2.3 for well over a year), or there is a bug in either Java
3D or Solaris OpenGL 1.2.3. I could probably dig up an old Solaris machine
with a Creator 3D, install 1.2.3 on it, and give it a spin, but it will have
to wait until after the first of the year. You'd be better off upgrading to
OpenGL 1.3 anyway. Unless the bug/problem is in Java 3D (and is simple to
fix), the chances of getting it fixed are pretty slim. In any case, Java 3D
1.4 will require OpenGL 1.3 or better.

Ok, after a Christmas hiatus, installing the OpenGL 1.3 from here:
http://www.sun.com/software/graphics/opengl/index.xml
then installing the subsequent patch from here:
http://www.sun.com/software/graphics/opengl/patches.html
gets it all working like a charm.

Thanx!
