Thank you!  I passed, so I'm now officially "ABD."  And I must once
again apologize for the tardy response -- my world was a little
consumed preparing for my proposal defense and comps.

Ok, that's one less factor to worry about.

Right, this is very similar to what happens in the "colorworld" demo
that's found in the GeoMason contrib directory.

This is odd since that should happen automatically -- there should be
no need to manually poke the display to have it update.  I presume
that the draw() function you mentioned is part of a class that extends
GeomPortrayal, as happens in the "colorworld" demo?  And that it
similarly is set up in a GUIState subclass as occurs in that demo?  If
not, what are the differences?
