[IDV #PEX-267884]: different lighting on two identical displays?

Hi Rich-

Man, you are just finding all kinds of things this week!

> One is for Wyoming, one is for South Dakota (the mag anomaly data for

I thought you were an oceanographer.  What are you doing in WY and SD? ;-)
> Although I think the displays are identical, the lighting in SD looks

It's a difference in the rendering due to the size of the grid.  In Wyoming, 
changing from shaded to not shaded has no effect - it is always not-shaded.  
The grid size (> 1M points)  is larger than the threshold (.5 M points)  we 
have set.  I know I had a really good reason for having a threshold back in 
2003, but I can't seem to remember what that is now.  I'm gonna remove it for 
now and the fix will be in the nightly build.

Try using tomorrow's nightly build.
