It's still a mystery to me how it could have been tickled in the first place.  Could you personally send me the copy of sim/portrayal/geo/ that you are using?  Or your geomason.jar file?  And I do suggest you take Mark's advice and use the SVN repository version of GeoMason in general.

I extended my agents, which implement Steppables to MasonGeometries but forgot to add the geometry when using them. I had -before I changed them to extend the MG-class - a Point-Method which sets and gets the location, but the mason/geomason methods work with the getGeometry from the MG - and this i forgot to add to my own set-method.
