Well, now, *that* I can believe. There were LOTS of 
problems with IDL 5.0. These objects weren't really
sorted out until about IDL 5.2.

Actually, as I was informed just a few minutes ago
by my object graphics angel, that wasn't as bad an
idea as I thought it was. But your planned implementation
was a little shaky. I'm hoping I can write an example
soon to show you what I mean.

Oh, many times. Not only on my old beater of a truck,
but in my IDL programs as well. :-)
