Please provide any additional information below.
The last build of Singularity that I personally build from the git master (build 5996? I do not remember as I have foolishly deleted my build tree before installing this latest alpha release) had normal rendering. In build 6068 I have played with all of the shaders and other settings in the Preferences panel to see at what point the rendering will become somewhat normal. I could not find any setting that made it so. I did not play with any of the Debug Settings in the viewer; this was a fresh install with all previous settings and cache files having been manually deleted before installing.

The following screen shots show the state of affairs with regards to the graphics rendering in build 6068. There is a series of shots that include the Preferences Panel open to the graphics settings, each of those shots showing how it renders based upon the settings seen in the panel. Two additional screen shots, one each from my own OpenSim standalone region and the other taken from my OSgrid avatar, shows that this problem is not specific to any one grid.
