For the record: I just found the commit which broke it: 
6aa2b5caf625a142e92bf4e7c99452bfad968a8c which basically removed the check that 
OpenGL compositing does not get enabled with software rasterization.

The commit is from before the feature freeze and I am just stunned that we did not catch that 
mistake in the beta phase. Why do we actually have a beta phase if such things are not spotted 
by the users? Since after the release we have had several bug/crash reports indicating a 
serious problem with software rasterization which is the reason why I investigated it now.

I will push a patch to both 4.7 and master as soon as I found a way to reproduce here and 
ensure that the patch actually fixes it.
