[S] Brush & Spin on Sun Ultrasparc 1

Please forgive me if this a FAQ but I was unable to find anything
in my search so far.

I upgraded from an aging Sparc 2 to an Ultrasparc 1 with the
"creator 3d" configuration. It is one of our current corporate
standard configurations that we are encourged to use.

Operating system: Sun Microsystems Inc. SunOS 5.5. Generic May 1996
Splus: Version 3.4 Release 1 for Sun SPARC, SunOS 5.3 : 1996

My problem is this. When I attempt to use either brush or spin
the graphics comes up as in the past but as I attempt to rotate
the point cloud in any axis the old point locations persist along
with the new ones being drawn leaving me with a confusing ball of points
on the screen. I e-mailed and phoned support@statsci.com but have
received only an automated e-mail reply but no solution after a couple
weeks. Brush & spin worked on the old Sparc 2. I do not recall the
Sun OS on the Sparc 2 but the Splus package is the same.

Am I the only one having this problem? Has anybody seen and cured
this? I would appreciate any info or suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
