[osg-users] Cygwin compiled version from Svn will only load and convert osg files and not gif files - any thoughts?

Whoo hoo,

Maybe I'm getting some where.  Thanks Alberto.  If I use osgviewer to test and 
use the --image and display a jpg or gif or bmp file then osgViewer terminates 
normally but if I try to display an osg file (without the --image option) then 
I get the hang.  If I use the --image option on the osg file I get no data 
loaded so 1) is there an option similar to the --image that might limit what 
are attempting to do to the osg file or how we would display it.  It may be a 
far jump but my thoughts are this leads us down the path that it there is 
possibly something either in the osg plugin or more likely - the 3d 
functionality and the extra logic and threads needed to accomplish the 3d
