Bug#546538: warzone2100: black screen during gameplay

Package: warzone2100
Version: 2.2.2+dfsg1-1
Severity: important


I successfully played warzone2100 a few months ago (and had a great
time, thanks!).  Tonight, when I try to play a skirmish game, all I get
is a black screen where the tanks and scenery should be during gameplay
(the menus and so on are all fine).  When I move my mouse around the
black screen, I can tell that units are present, as I get the usual
description on hover effect, but I can't see any of the gameplay.

I've just recently upgraded X and my kernel in order to get KMS working,
so this also involves a bunch of GL and so on changes.  It's entirely
possible that one of these changes is what broke warzone, but there's
none of the usual STDERR output about GL problems.

Let me know how I can be of assistance.
