Hi Ben,

   I tried your wrl files using osg with the coin3d plugin (alternate for 
some of what openvrml does) and got predictable results, given your post.

   When bombing on the Bad.wrl file, coin kindly provided the following:

% osgviewer Bad.wrl
Coin read error: Unknown field "mesh" in "VRMLShape"
         Occurred at line   5 in Bad.wrl
osgviewer: No data loaded

   Maybe this will help?
