So, I was converting some code from c++ to SDL, and I made the first lines of a
macro plot 3 spheres to mark positions on a grid.

The problem is, the first sphere doesn't show up.
I made the sphere bigger, then bigger, then commented out the grid plane, and
then figured - what the heck - I'll instantiate it twice.

And lo and behold - the sphere showed up.
Commenting out the preceding duplicate sphere made it disappear again!  :O

I've got a work-around going where I just precede everything with
sphere {0, 0}
but this has got to be one of the weirdest things I've come across.
