about three years down the road I tend to think that your crash has
auto-repaired itself.
But it still does not run when started as a regular user with the
boinc-manager. It works fine,
however, when invoked as root and in the working directory of the
running task

cd /var/lib/boinc-client/slots/0

It all also works just fine when the boincmgr is started as root, which
reduces it to a
permission thingy. And indeed, my account was just assigned to the boinc
That changed fixed the graphics display.
