evaluate/generate the matrix qmat.  This occurs on a Macintosh IIfx under
System 7.5.

I have inserted a comment line immediately above the the offending line.
I believe the problem has to do with local variables, although this naive
Mathematican can't quite understand the problem.

Can anyone offer a fix to this?  Do I need to use the "Module" command or
something?

Here's the notebook:

A different but related problem occurs when I run this on a Macintosh
Quadra 660AV.  On that machine the evaluation of the function pX[i_]
generates an 8-element
list (vector) instead of a single element result (scalar) for pX[1].
And evaluation of pX[2], pX[3],... produces an error.  Same thing for pY[j_].

Thanks.
