                      DECwindows Motif V1.1, V1.2
                      OpenVMS Alpha V6.1
     System Reboot Necessary:  No


An ECO kit exists for DEC Open3D V2.4 on OpenVMS Alpha V6.1.  This kit
addresses the following problems: 

  o  Symbols (polymarkers) changing color under extreme load when

     This problem occurred with an PHIGS (PEX protocol) application that
     displayed large numbers of polymarkers, lines and text and then
     frequently updated the display.  Occasionally, when the display was
     updated and new colors for some symbols, lines and text had been
     requested, the line and text entities changed properly, but some
     symbols retained the "old" color. 

  o  PEX HitTest malfunction.

     This problem was experienced with a PHIGS (PEX protocol)
     application.  When multiple instances of the same object were
     displayed, then many of these instances were picked or "selected"
     using the PEX HitTest function, all objects were properly
     lit/selected except the first in the picked series.

  o  Window Refresh with Resize.

     When a PHIGS application's graphics window was resized to a smaller
     area then resized back to the original or larger area, the window
     contents appeared to not scale properly or were clipped.

  o  Leading line color wrong for bitmap text.

     This problem was found with a PHIGS (PEX protocol) application.
     Leading lines for bitmap precision annotation text were incorrectly
     using the current text color.  Instead, the leading line should be
     assigned polyline attributes in accordance with the ANSI standard
     for PHIGS '88, page 142. 


The system/cluster does not need to be rebooted after this kit is 
installed.  However, the server must be restarted after the installation
of this kit.

NOTE:  Please note that the actual name for the DEC Open3D ECO saveset
       is OPEN3D_E12024.  This name is different than what is documented
       in the ECO Release Notes.
