When an OrbitFrame is used to position an XYZ trajectory, the trajectory is positioned relative to the object's path. It should be positioned relative to the OrbitFrame's Center.

    I know you're right about it being the same one.
    Sorry: I couldn't find it when I looked and thought I hadn't submitted
    it to Tracker.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "the problem". Do you think that the two SSC OrbitFrames actually should work, producing different orbits (my preference),
    or that one of the constructs should be considered invalid and Celestia should complain about it?

    The two SSC OrbitFrames should both work and produce two different orbits.

    The patch recently posted to the developers' mailing list does indeed seem to correct for this problem. I'll rashly assume the code will be submitted to cvs in the near future. ;)
