Why doesn't this simple code produce a movie?

In[4]:= ani[t_]:=Point[{Sin[t],Cos[t],Sin[t]+Cos[t]}]

In[7]:= Table[Graphics3D[ani[t]],{t,0,4}]

Out[7]= {-Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-,

In[8]:= ShowAnimation[%]

Out[8]= ShowAnimation[{-Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-, >
-Graphics3D-, -Graphics3D-}]

	Is there a bug?   I am running version 2.1 on a SGI Iris.

P.S.  I also noticed that while the ShowAnimation example on page
	175 in the 2nd Edition Mma Handbook works, the 
	In[2] := Show[GraphicsArray[Partition[%,3]]]

	has no effect.
