Re: Resource Leak

I found this problem because I have a timeseries plot that updates the
time axis periodically (every minute) and runs out of memory after many

I don't see the problem with Java3D version 1.1.3 but it was not a
controlled test (several differences in the environment).

For the record, I am using j2sdk1.4.0 and Java3D 1.3 on Linux and have
reproduced the leak on Windows.
