[Bf-committers] Really strange...no rendering at all and materials lost in space

 I am using a blender compiled from CVS as of the time of writing this


 First issue:

 I downloaded some models of the Star-Trek series fro blender.

 It is possible to show a shading while pressing ZKEY or SHIFT-ZKEY
 (so the model seems to be ok).

 But pressing F12 to start rendering pops up a black preview window
 and that's it. The CPU-Loadmeter of my desktop does not make any
 move. Adding lamps over and over does not help. ;)


 Second issue:

 From time to time it happens, that the material preview window get
 lost in space.
 Then it is no longer possible to preview any material.


 Open an additional  button window.

 Enter material bottons and with a little luck a new preview window is

 Kill old material buttons window.

 Reorganise the whole windows setup of your Blender.

 You're done.

 Keep hacking!
