This is very odd. 

Bob - did you try both the nodd dd versions? did they act the same way?

Please try running these vics as well, as compiled by the UCL folks, and
see if they have the same problems.

Allan-- you're still coming in thru the bridge, right? Are you saying that
the vic on linux is also only showing local video? This seems to point to
a network problem.

This code runs great on both win2k nodes here at anl, and on my laptop.
Can folks who have the new vic running successfully chime in with what
version of NT/Win2k they are running, and whether they are using the dd or
nodd versions?
