Re: display something several times

Hi Andre,

You can fix this by replacing all occurrences of 'new RealType(...)'
by 'getRealType(...)'. The RealType constructors are all deprecated
now, but some old code examples (many written by me, I must confess)
still use 'new RealType(...)' and mislead beginners.

Cheers,
Bill
