Hardware acceleration

I'm testing cygwin hardware acceleration using the instructions found
here: http://cygwin.com/xfree/docs/ug/using-aiglx.html

When running the the default options(which implies -wgl) I can see my
graphics card (Intel HD graphics 3000) when running glxinfo | grep

If I start the server with -nowgl, I see the software renderer.

The problem is that I see absolutely no difference between the two
when running the 'glxgears' program: It starts fine and stays like
that for 2-3 seconds, then I start to see some flickering(the gears
seem to be constantly "struggling to rotate), but the fps displayed in
the terminal is not affected(I get a constant  average of 1500fps),
just the rendering gets strange.

Perhaps I'm missing something(some other lib that needs to be installed)?
