Re: [Rd] Display list redraw incomplete

Just to follow up with a few more details on this problem (which persists on my PowerBook Mac but no where else). I ran a bisection search on the sources and found that SVN revision 40634 introduces this problem. This revision introduced quite a few changes to 'src/main/graphics.c' which I am just beginning to go through.

GIven that I don't see this problem on my Linux box and only on the Mac, I'm tempted to think this is a compiler issue or perhaps some weird problem with my setup. I noticed that I don't have the exact same gfortran compiler as recommended on but I don't see how that would cause a problem here.
Otherwise, I am using gcc 4.0.1 which comes with Xcode.

I will keep digging but any pointers would be appreciated.
