Ah! OK. Confusing indeed, especially as the *.DOM file goes into the
same directory as the exe.
Also, saved *.DOM files when loaded again, do not show the originally
saved object, but a default half sphere.

I am confused about the 'Materials'(and the objects). Do I have to use
the same names as those given in the droplist for WireFrame/Flat Faces/
Smooth Faces? Whether I do that or not, no materials are exported, nor
is the geometry subdivided according to different materials. In Poseray,
I get one unnamed_group (a half sphere) with one unnamed_material
(white), whatever I do.

Hmmm... I am unable to reproduce this...
