OpenGL NeHe GLUT lesson5 code freezes my machine

I'm having trouble understanding why the following application freezes my machine when I compile and run it on Ubuntu Linux 11.04 (64bit) with Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Driver version (270.41.06).
It is the GLUT code from NeHe OpenGL Tutorial (lesson05).
I've tested the same code on MacOS X and it seems to work.

Can someone help me?

I've compiled that same lesson under Win7 and Debian and it works fine. The only difference is that I use Freeglut and 32-bit Linux. You probably have some driver issues or some kind of 64 bit compatability problem. In those situations, I usually just start commenting out lines until I can run something. Who knows, you may find out that you can't even run an empty rendering window.

I'm willing to bet it's your char ** argv on main. GLUT is old old old and most likely not 64-bit safe, so sending this to glutInit (as well as sending &argc) may cause all kinds of interesting things to happen.
