Great!  Since I'm sitting at home with a cold today anyway, I figured 
I'd take a swing at this.  I hacked it to fit in with the most recent 
version of my code, and everything works great.  I'll try to get it on 
my ftp site tonight.  Sheesh, three versions in three days.

I fixed the first two, but I think we're stuck with the last one -- 
even the Windows program seems to do this.  Since my code is faster now 
than it was a couple of days ago, I decided to reset the resolution and 
other parameters while I'm at it.  It looks nice.

No sweat.  I'm going to try to add some way of varying the brightness, 
contrast, and white balance next.

I really ought to be on the couch, sleeping, but this is too much fun
