re:I would like to get a copy of the file with the THAE grids in it so
   I can trace down this bug in XSECTG.  Can you make this available?

If you can put the file somewhere on a disk that I can FTP to and
give me the user name and password for the FTP (anonymous FTP would be
best), then I will grab it and see what I can see.

OK.  So the T grids are OK.

Hmm... Can you give me the scenario that causes the window crash?
It seems from this comment that if I FTP the file, I will not have
any problems.

This was a good move.  I have been pressing SSEC to finish their ADDE
routines so that I can _finally_ move Unidata McIDAS sites to full use
of ADDE.  I don't know why they don't think that this is an important
thing to do.
