This wors OK. I have been able to run Test40 to Test60. The only one which
failing is Test56 which starts with a : Connection refused to host :
Have you seen this before ?
My problems were due to the fact that I was forgetting to diasable the JIT
which in not working in the current Blackdown version.

What I would like now is to visualize 3D data coming from 3D surfacis
unstructured meshes. Is this possible ? Have you a test doing something
similar ? This could be a
good starting point.
