Re: geomview.1.4.1

Ohhhh.  Appearance varies with point of view?  That tends to happen if the
shape contains non-planar polygons -- could that be the case?
MESH objects can actually deal with non-planar quadrilateral facets, since
they're really drawn by splitting each facet into two triangles (so if the
facets aren't planar you see a corrugated surface, but at least it's a 
well-defined one).  But OFF and QUAD objects don't do this -- they just feed
the polygons to GL, which draws them differently depending on the point
of view.

Anyway, I'll look forward to seeing your example.
