Trying to render the benchmark scene map.aoi on SGI
Indy, IRIX 6.5 and Java Runtime Environment 1.4.1_06.
After some 10 minutes, the rendering fails to a
NullPointerException.

I am not sure about the exact location of the problem:
it could be the SGI Java implementation as well. While
on Windows the whole map.aoi renders fully using only
some 200M memory, in IRIX the Java process takes over
400M memory, which could be a sign of problems in
garbage collection.

Here is the stack trace on the exception:

    IRIX no longer used, very out of date AOI. Closing.
