6u10 b12Fixed
Use of the GL_ARB_texture_rectangle extension by Java 2D
complicates any third-party libraries that try to interact with
the OGL pipeline via RSL or otherwise (and we've run into driver bugs in 
the past related to this extension).

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/java2d_data/6u10/6656574.1

EVALUATION For now we will disable its use. We will still make use of the GL_ARB_texture_non_power_of_two extension when available, which is the better choice going forward anyway.
