  POV-Ray 3.7+ does not show display window

I just bought a new Windows 10 laptop, and I'm regretting it already.  I
installed openSUSE 15.3 dual boot, and the problems are unending.  POV-
Ray renders normally, but the display window does not show for versions
3.7 or 3.8.  The display window does appear for versions 3.5 and 3.6.

Asking for advice on non-POV-related matters, I was suggested the
following command; perhaps the output may be relevant.
