I doubt its a graphics card issue (unless I'm doubly unlucky).  I
experienced the problem with my "old" graphics card (a 4MB AGP card that
came with my Gateway Pentium II - 233 MHz machine.  I can't remember the
brand, but I know it was NOT an ATI!)  My new card is a GeForce with 32
MB ram and the problem still exists.  I am running IDL 5.3.1 with 128 MB
ram so I doubt its a memory problem either.
