ok.  when i get the chance then i will build a debug version and
see where the error occurs.  It is not triggered until the pipeline
is activated, so it could be anywhere.

We don't run only Solaris.  Our two main platforms are solaris
and linux.   In the nearish future we will largely develop with Linux

Does the dahsboard under Solaris show any problem for this class ?

Does it happen every time or just when the window becomes zero sized or anything like that? The only thing that the RenderToRectangle code really does is insert an additional glPixelZoom( float,float) call before the draw and then glPixelZoom( 1.0, 1.0) afterwards.

> is really it. width and height are the (visible) image dimensions and are wrong when the image is cropped - that's the bug you have just found - can you see if they are becoming zero at any point. possibly some bug in unrelated code is causing a div by zero or something. can you try inserting a check wherever you see the above lines? (they appear many times in vtkopenglimagemapper)
