I always thought that once the object was textured, it was fixed, and could not
be overridden.  This has been discussed in the past, so I'm surprised.  I also
do a lot of scenes where I have some objects in a union textured/pigmented and
then the union gets a texture/pigment, and only the default textured objects get
the union texture.

I thought you had fixed the uv-mapping of the torus, so that it's consistent
with all of the other primitives, and not backwards anymore.  Does that have
anything to do with it?  (probably not, but...)
