Why no OpenCL output on iMac OS X Lion?


I'm running Mathematica 8.0.4 on the latest, 2011 iMac (3.4 GHz Core i7, 
16 GB RAM) under OS X Lion (10.7.3). The graphics adapter is an AMD 
Radeon HD 6970M (2048 MB VRAM).

After loading OpneCLLink, OpenCLQ[] returns True.

Yet evaluating examples from the ref page for OpenCLFractalRender3D 
returns nothing. E.g., OpenCLFractalRender3D[].

Moreover, it seems as if the OpenCL link is being closed, or the package 
unloaded, immediately after I try such an evaluation -- because if I 
evaluate it again, now I get the input expression itself returned; and 
indeed the $ContextPath no longer includes OpenCLLink (or the SymboliC 
and CCompilerDriver automatically added by loading OpenCLLink).

What could be wrong?
