bugs

Hi,

I have a real-time time series display that periodically updates the
time axis. I've been running into some out of memory problems, so I
wrote a little test program (attached) that has revealed some bugs. I'm
seeing the problems with recent stable and beta versions of the jdk and
java3d on Linux and Windows and with the latest visad.jar.

1) After numerous calls (depending on max heap size, less than 5000 with
the attached program with jvm defaults) to ScalarMap.setRange(), I get
an OutOfMemoryError. Smells like a memory leak. RangeControl.setRange()
also leads to an OutOfMemoryError. Hopefully it is not in java3d so we
can do something about it. It does not happen with java2d
(DisplayImplJ2D), though.

2) While running the test, I saw what looks like a Thread bug. Every
once in a while I'll see the following exception. It occurs "randomly"
but not when I throw in a sleep.

java.lang.ClassCastException: javax.media.j3d.GeometryAtom

Let me know if you need more details.

Cheers,
