I have not experienced this problem, but my use of a DEC is limited (I typically run on either Solaris, Solarisx86, AIX, or Linux). I do have a site that recently loaded on an Alpha, and I have not heard about any problems from him. The problem you describe sounds like some portion of memory is getting stepped on. Have you ascertained whether or not it makes a difference which frames are used for the display? >thanks, Sorry I can't be of more help. Unfortunately, I am on travel until Thursday, so I can't even try to duplicate your problem. Tom >From address@hidden Wed Oct 6 05:26:58 1999 Tom, It does not matter what frames i use. Typically i have a LB of 1 15 which gets updated every 15 minutes with new GOES imagery. Ultimately each frame gets wiped out! I do not have such a problem on my AIX box. I am thinking it may have something to do with the graphics cards on these 2 Alphas cause my older Alphas (600 series) which different cards do not have the same problem. Randy
