So, I've been following nehe's guide to creating shadows, and for whatever reason the shadows just aren't rendering. Not having an excellent understanding of things like the stencil-buffer means I'm sort of learning things as I go along. I hate outsourcing my debugging, but I'm kind of stumped here. does anybody know what's wrong?
[source lang=cpp]
glEnable(GL_CULL_FACE);
glCullFace(GL_FRONT);
glPushAttrib( GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT | GL_ENABLE_BIT | GL_POLYGON_BIT | GL_STENCIL_BUFFER_BIT );
glDisable( GL_LIGHTING );
glDepthMask( GL_FALSE );
glDepthFunc( GL_LEQUAL );
glEnable( GL_STENCIL_TEST );
glColorMask( GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE );
glStencilFunc( GL_ALWAYS, 1, 0xFFFFFFFFL );

glFrontFace( GL_CCW );
glStencilOp( GL_KEEP, GL_KEEP, GL_INCR );

//shadow volume quad drawing code here
//I've checked to make sure that the code to draw the volume is running
//so I thought I'd spare you that

glColorMask(GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE);

glColor4f(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.4f);
glEnable(GL_BLEND);
glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);
glStencilFunc(GL_NOTEQUAL, 0, 0xffffffff);
glStencilOp(GL_KEEP, GL_KEEP, GL_KEEP);

glPushMatrix();
glLoadIdentity();
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glOrtho(0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();

glBegin(GL_QUADS);
glVertex2i(0, 0);
glVertex2i(0, 1);
glVertex2i(1, 1);
glVertex2i(1, 0);
glEnd();

glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST);
glPopMatrix();
glPopAttrib();

glEnable(GL_LIGHTING);
glDisable(GL_STENCIL_TEST);
glShadeModel(GL_SMOOTH);
glDisable(GL_CULL_FACE);
[/source]

And I run that every frame. I have a feeling it's a problem in how I arranged the various gl*() commands. Only the large, screen-covering shadow is drawing with no parts being cut out.
