Bug Description

I relay this bug from Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=709303

To reproduce (assumes Debian/Ubuntu):
   1) Install xrdp and rdesktop
   2) rdesktop localhost (and login)
   3) Launch stellarium in a console

Simply: the problem is that when you run Stellarium in GL-uncapable X (e.g., using rdesktop with xrdp),
it will show information about missing GL2 support ("This system does not support OpenGL."),
then will try to fallback to OpenGL 1, and then will crash.

My output from 0.12.1:
