VPython/Tk app works on single processor but not dual

Les,

I really want to build VPython from source myself, so that I can
instrument and tweak the C code to check out some theories I've got
about why it's hanging.  If you've got a VC++ project file, I'd like
to have that.  Is the VPython build process for Win32 documented
anywhere?

This problem is getting in the way of my general goal:  creating
interactive programs that allow the user to play with graphic
representations of mathematical concepts.  I'm hoping to create some
stuff that K-12 students will find compelling and will help develop
useful intuition about math.  The "The Book of Numbers" book by Conway
and Guy looks to be wonderful source of material that could be adapted
into such programs.  I'm hoping that VPython displays with Tk
controllers will be a good medium for creating such programs, but I'm
not wedded to that approach.

P.S.  I'm using a 3DFx VooDoo-3 3000 16MB AGP video card.

P.P.S.  I get hundreds of email messages every day.  I have seen that at
least one of the mail servers involved will refuse incoming messages
that appear to come from invalid domain names.
