David,

yes, 6.0.2.1 was specifically a mac bug fix version. Something to do
with plotting/graphics I think. I think Michael has reverted to a
previous version [ 5. something ] because of time constraints.
The Linux situation is worrying. I cannot test any of this, I only
have a premier service mac licence. I guess if only *some* of the
linux users at Princeton are having difficulties and the mathematica
versions are the same then it would be down to Linux versions.

Peter
