We have come across a sublte bug, only apparent in the
MS JVM.

Use case:

1. Do the default rendering of a .pdb file in the applet
2. Turn off the wireframe with a script
3. Turn off the spacefill with a script

4. Turn on Trace or Cartoon with the applet popup menu

Result:

MSJVM show nothing or causes the apple to hang
Sun JVM works as expected - Trace or Cartoon is shown.

    This one sounds like it may be difficult to track down.

    Q: Does anything show up in the java console?

    Q: Does it occur with *any* .pdb file?

    You make a distinction between 'scripts' and 'applet popup
    menu in #2/#3/#4.

    Q: Can you confirm whether or not the same behavior exists
    if you turn off wireframe and spacefill using the popup menu?

    Q: Can you determine whether or not the problem occurs if
    you use a script to turn on the cartoon?

    Q: Can you create *very* simple page and put it on a web
    site where I can get to it.

    Q: Can you try it on Netscape 4.* Win32?

    I don't have easy access to a machine with the MSFT JVM, but
    will find one.

    I cannot reproduce this problem. I hope/assume that it was
    fixed at some point over the last few months.
