Yeah, that's a strange problem; I'm glad you found a solution.

Just thought I would mention that you can make a box object with zero thickness,
which might be better for billboards. I usually use that trick.

#declare sprite = box {<-.5,0,0>,<.5,1,0> };

I wonder if that would have any effect on your original problem.

--------
A box can't be *scaled* to have zero-thickness, but it can be made that way
initially.
