This was cool.  I set a breakpoint in my SDL debugger just before the 
vrotate.  Once that hit, I set a breakpoint in the POV-Ray c++.
I then stepped through the vrotate while at the same time stepping 
through my library.  Lo, I got the exact same results.

I'm in agony.

When I first saw this phenomenon, I said "interesting, the vector looks 
correct, just the wrong length.  But I'm not doing any vlength work so 
that's just a coincidence."  Wrong!  I scaled the Tugboat by 0.7 so he'd 
fit in the tub better.  I need a drink.
