Given that, I would see if you can get someone else to run your
program to check if it is "reproducible" (it is possible that you could
have a flaky memory chip). It could be a bug in Windows or of course,
a bug in VTK. I'd first see if you can get someone else with the same
software (Windows 2000 with VTK 4.0 standard build). If not, I'm
willing to try it on my Linux system.
