	That's certainly possible.

	To me, when I hear what you described(you animate the brightness, it stops 
updating?), that's unrelated to the graphics card.  Most site-specific stuff, 
for that matter.  If you're getting odd display artefacts, but you can save 
out with a ROP, that's hardware related, but what you're describing sounds 
like something I should be able to repro here.

	I do agree that sometimes it's impractical to send a 300-node COPnet, though.  
Also, it's my understanding that debugging COP issues like this is the single 
toughest thing for them to do since they need to match the input files in 
size/bit depth/format.  That's a lot of work to repro, in most cases.
