Thanks for the input guys.
I have tried build 16.5.536 and 16.5.571
Both failed, but I do have redshift, and I have not updated that in a 
while, so it might be that or my preference file.
I'm rendering for a deadline right now, so I don't want to break things, 
but I will try once I'm done, and report back :)
Thanks
