Many thanks for your explanation. Is the known problem the <el=xxx> 
rather than <elevation=xxx>? If so, why doesn't NVIZ work when called 
from the command line, with nothing passed to it? Are the errors 
"Original error: invalid command name "tkScreenChanged",    Error in 
bgerror: invalid command name "bgerror" and "Error in startup script: 
invalid command name "tk_menuBar"" fixed in the latest CVS version, 
or are they due to something else which can't be diagnosed w/o 
compiling the source and seeing what happens?
