I didn't know about the coordinate system.  I pared down the code, but
didn't know my resize function resized the coordinate system as well as the
viewing window.  Otherwise I would've posted it.  Sorry.

But now I'm at a complete loss.  I tried the same code on other machines,
both testing and unstable, and it worked.  It just acts wierd on THIS

This machine must have the same GL as Richard's and my other machines, so
that's unlikely to be the problem.  The difference is the video card and
monitor.  But I've played GL games on this machine, and haven't seen any
problems before.  The video card is a well supported Voodoo 5 and a flat
screen monitor.

I give up.  I'll play with OpenGL on my other machine.  Grrrr.   I wish
there were a way to debug graphics.


The mathematics of physics has become ever more abstract, rather than more
complicated.  The mind of God appears to be abstract but not complicated.
He also appears to like group theory.  --  Tony Zee's "Fearful Symmetry"
