I got a peculiar render of the "glass" in the attached
file's scene that I thought to alert you of. I'll upload its
jpg image shortly to smartgroups.

    The object seems to be messed up in a number of ways. Its normals are
    reversed (i.e. the "inside" is actually the outside), which is what is
    confusing the raytracer. You should be able to fix this by selecting
    "Invert Surface Normals", but that seems to produce a freeze, as do
    various other editing operations on this object. I'll investigate further...

    The reversed-normal thing is helpful for future reference.
    Thanks!
