I don't know if this could interest anyone here, but I don't know where 
else to post it :-)

Defining the object in the environment section I used a mesh2 but 
Megapov 1.21 had a problem, the error message was:

"The POV-Ray core rendering code threw an unhandled exception.
The backend thread has been shut down and you will not be able to 
perform any further renders.
[....]"

The mesh2 object was created using param.inc, from 
http://members.home.nl/seedseven/#param

Code example that gives that problem:

}

#declare F1= function(u,v){u}
#declare F2= function(u,v){v}
#declare F3= function(u,v){

======cut=====

If clock_on is false all works and the .dat file is created, after that, 
using the -kff switch, it gives the error message.

The operative system used to run Megapov is Windows 98 SE.

Using a parametric object instead of the mesh2 works fine.
