      There are always some kind of issues associated with the Virtual OS, most 
likely due to missing some system library in the virtual OS. There is not any 
label display in the background map, so probably not an issue. If you did see 
the labeling problem, you can try to change the display font in the contour 
display control.
      Two things you can try to see if any one can help: one is to uncheck the 
geometry by reference, it is under Edit > User Preference > System. And the 
other is in display control of the background map, check the "Fast rendering" 
check box.

      Let me know what you see after these changes.
