Mesa software rendering draws incompletely on Raspberry Pi

I'm using a vintage Raspberry Pi model B (256MB) with its relatively new PIXEL 1.2 distribution.
PIXEL does not support hardware opengl acceleration, and you can't turn it on in the configuration dialog, so, using stock software Mesa OpenGL.
sudo apt-get install geomview sudo apt-get install savi geomview -run savi
on the Pi should generate a blue and yellow texturemapping Earth sphere in the Geomview 3D camera window. It does not, drawing only a partial sphere, badly, suggesting that there is a Mesa software bug here. (SaVi and Geomview are both twenty years old, and were doing texturemapping on things far less powerful than a model B, long long ago.)
