I screwed up when I told you to override ShadowTypeJ3D.makeAppearance(),
because it turns out to be static and cannot be overridden.

I made a not-very-well-tested change, so makeAppearance() is
no longer static (now there is an equivalent static method
named staticMakeAppearance()). Its in the *.jar files at:

  ftp://ftp.ssec.wisc.edu/pub/visad-2.0/untested/

Please let us know if you still have problems.

Cheers,
Bill
