Right.  Just got back from being on travel, but the bug was that
genNames hangs and fails to return on WinXP 32 when trying to return
display list objects.  It turns out that you can pretend that display
lists are already allocated with most video cards, so it's not a big
deal, but it was a seriously confusing bug for a day or two.  when I
get back to the office, I'll forward the offending code.

I try to take things like a crow; war and chaos don't always ruin a
picnic, they just mean you have to be careful what you swallow.
