Re: Geomview make bug: CPU = NeXT

Oops.  Thanks, now fixed.

I don't understand -- is this when discrete groups are loaded via maniview,
or when you just run geomview with a .dgp object manually?  I tried a couple 
of these -- fig8.dgp and good_klein_quick.dgp -- and saw no faces.

Oh -- sorry -- I didn't know you were still working on it.  OK, it
won't go out with future source distributions.  (I made some small changes,
e.g. file browsing for the Load panel -- did you get those?)
