I'm experiencing the following problem with 3D graphics display in 
Mathematica 6 under Windows XP (with an ATI 256 MB video card): If I 
display the result of, say,


and then use the mouse to rotate the graphic, at various instances the 
size of the sphere will suddenly grow, and then when I rotate it further 
it will suddenly shrink.

Anybody else notice such behavior?  Any explanation?
