I assumed you had run my test or something like it and the code had 
passed, and there was just something different about the platform you're 
testing on from mine. So it looks like it might come down to some 
obscure Windows bug? Fancy that. <g> I hope you can find it.

I keep worrying that this will turn out to be some display driver 
problem, like the bad old Win95 days, where it shows up on just a 
minority of the systems out there. I really need to bring Linux up to 
date on this machine and start developing there. Maybe that will be *my* 
project for this weekend.
