Can I get a login to one of the accounts that is seeing the problem so
I can really troubleshoot this?  Thanks in advance...

No, absolutely not.  As a matter of fact, it should definitely NOT be
world writable.  It should, however, be group writable.  Could this
be the problem?  Hopefully, the only users in the same group as 'mcidas'
are 'mcadde' and 'ldm.

No, the symptoms are definitely that VIRT9300 is not being overwritten
as it should.  The fact that an old map is being drawn says this "with
a loud voice".  The fact that you deleted and recreated your McIDAS-X
working directory should, on the other hand, mean that all files in the
directory are writable by you.  I need to get into a session that
fails so that I can probe what is happening.
