Hi,

I'm sitting on a Suse Linux Workstation and I'm running Windows 2000 
under VMWare. POV-Ray 3.7 beta 3 crashes while rendering the bitmaps of 
the include menu. I was able to track it down to the coords key word in 
the facets pattern.

This is a minimal scene for reproducing:

//--[BEGIN]--//
light_source {
     <0, 5, 0>
     color rgb 1
}

plane {
   y, -1
   pigment { color rgb 1 }
   normal {
         facets 0.5
	//--> uncomment to crash POV-Ray
         //coords -1.5
         scale 3
       }
}
//--[END]--//

My configuration:
Hardware:
Athlon XP 3200+
1 GB RAM (256 MB reserved for VMWare)

Software:
Suse Linux 9.2 (Kernel 2.6.5-7.111
VMWare 4.5.2
   running Windows 2000 SP 4
   POV-Ray 3.7 beta 3

So long,

Bonsai

You are a team of one? Or is it just that you happen to be the person 
answering the mail?

Either these bugs are very simple to fix, or the developers are getting 
through this lot remarkably well...
