20040302: graphics gone missing in McIDAS session (cont.)

The only thing left to consider is if you turned graphics off
in those frames?  This should only last for a single McIDAS
session, but since we are dealing with a completely strange
situation I say try turning the graphics off and then on in
frame 5 and then plotting something in it.

If that doesn't work, the only thing I can suggest is once
again investigating the existence of FrameN.M files.  I suggest
once again using DMAP, but this time from the Unix command
line when a McIDAS session is NOT running:

cd ~/mcidas/data
dmap.k Frame

The only file that should be found is one in a subdirectory
of ~/.mctmp.  If there are more, especially if there are
files like Frame5.0, Frame6.0, etc., then you have some cleanup
to do.

One last question: do you use independent graphics?  If yes, and
if all else fails, try turning independent graphis off and see
what happens.

If all of the above fails, I am at a loss for what is happening.
It would be very useful if we (SSEC or I) could get onto the
system while things are failing so we could do some investigations.

ok..can you tell me how to turn the graphics OFF for a give frame.

the other thing i notice is that no matter which account i use to fire up
mcidas frames 6-13 are hosed. Also when i fire up mcidas i get this MCIMAGE:
using slow processing for z-16 images.
