Re: [nbos] [FM] VMWare

Thanks to any who may have VMWare Fusion and can reproduce this. For
me, it's pretty consistent -- whenever attempting any kind of raster
fill, even on the most basic maps, it just makes a vertical bar instead.

Additional version info: I'm running VMWare Fusion 2.0.4 (I believe
the latest update). I am not trying to run it under Unity, though I
did test that -- same results. This emulates a 128 MB video card and
is given 1 GB RAM, 2 CPUs to run under the VM. My machine is a Macbook
Pro running using the 9600M GT (high performance graphics card, not
the lower/energy efficient 9400M).

Raster fill works as expected under FM 8.0.3d on my system. It's only
producing this odd result under FM 8.1.0f.

One thing I haven't done is to try switching to the 9400M graphics and
see if FM/VMWare/graphics card interaction behaves any differently. I
will try that today and if there are different results, I will post to
this list.
