Issue description

Both mpv and electrum fail to start with the error i965: Failed to submit batchbuffer: Input/output error.


I don't know how to make this fix permanent and in a way that fixes not only mpv and electrum, but all the programs which may be affected.

However, the problem can be resolved by setting the environment variable export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1.
