Yes, unfortunately, I can confirm.  :(  The 3D board is unusable on Linux
at the moment.  It only intermittantly (rarely) registers mouse clicks,
enough that it's unplayable.  I confirmed that this also applies to the
current version with the same Mesa libraries, so this is not a problem
introduced by the new gnubg version.

For right now, I'm going to disable the 3D board in the build to ensure
that the game is usable, since based on the above bug report it sounds
like the problem is in gnubg and therefore is unlikely to get magically
fixed by a newer version of Mesa.

I suppose the other option would be to switch to GTK 3, but it sounds like
that's probably not advisable for the Debian package yet?
