vmware won't start through virtualgl LD_PRELOAD

Description

To get it to work, I had to place the virtualgl libraries in /etc/ld.so.preload before launching vmplayer.
Using vglrun failed with the dreaded ERROR: ld.so: object 'lib??faker.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

I tried chmoding as per the virtualgl manual: 12: Using VirtualGL with setuid/setgid Executables, but that did not help.

I also tried launching vmplayer from a regular terminal with just:

DISPLAY=:THEXPRADISPLAY vglrun vmplayer

Same problem. Weird.

For now, I have added this information to wiki/Usage/OpenGL.
It would be good to figure out what is going on here.
