hmm, the 'bigSphere' macro does work until one tries to instantiate an object,
it runs otherwise.  and, well, I cannot see anything amiss.

yes, as it should, having just a '0)' before the primitive.  I don't get the
line before thing but suspect it's for the same reason -- extra ("spurious")

as for adding more output in the include, the error does occur in the scene
file.  (btw, a 'bool' type payload with debug on will print return info).

thanks for looking.
