[OSGeo-Discuss] Can someone test a program with point clouds?

I'm in Georgia visiting another surveyor, who asked me to write the program to 
begin with, and got it running on his NUC in such a way that he can try 
different versions if I tell him the commands to run. It's running on a full-
size (56 million) point cloud, which may be too big for this NUC's RAM. I've 
found a few problems:

* The NUC has Wayland. I've never run it on Wayland before, the pulldown menus 
are lower than they should be, it outputs Wayland errors, and when I hit a key 
to stop the screen saver, PerfectTIN crashed. "The Wayland connection broke. 
Did the Wayland compositor die?"

* When I tried to restart it from the checkpoint file, it said it was corrupt, 
and some menu items remained grayed out even when I cleared it.

* It got stuck for a long time with eleven big triangles all sharing a common 
corner. This is an old problem, I know what's going on, and I'm going to add a 
button as a workaround.
