Christian,

I have been less than thorough in using SYSVAL 900 to set the unit
display in the applications run from the MCGUI.  I will add this
to my list of things to attend to.

The version of Tcl/Tk that is used by McIDAS is the one that is
distributed with it.  If you grabbed v2002 early (like in August)
and then updated it with my addenda, then you will be using Tcl/Tk
version 8.0.4.  If you grabbed the full distribution recently
(i.e., at addenda v2002b), you will be using Tcl/Tk version 8.4.1.

As to the resizing issue, I have never experienced this one before,
but, then again, I do most of my testing on Solaris, Linux, and
OSF/1.  Not a good answer, I know, but it is the best I can offer.
I will have to try and recreate the SSEC GUI problem on one of our
IRIX machines and get back to you.

Ok. I used the addenda so it was using 8.0.4.

I am displaying on OS X running XFree86 4.3 though... I don't know if 
this is only a problem on the display part.
