[OpenSCAD] Release showstoppers?

Generic, no-name clone of an ATI Radeon, using ATI OpenGL drivers,
running on WinXP.
 (2011.06 actually looks worse than the newer version)

I was hesitant to even report this, since a "real" video card with
manufacturer-provided  drivers would probably work better. Running
under Wine with Mesa actually works fine (except for small bug in
example 6).

Here are images:
