I found the mistake that is causing the skewed image. I forgot the end 
condition on a FOR loop will can the end value of the loop, so I was 
calculating one extra pixel per row, which the mesh camera dutifully 
pushed to the next row, so my original code was generating more 
triangles than needed.

Live and learn.

Well ... live.
