You could try a newer build, available on my web page 
(http://www.stats.uwo.ca/faculty/murdoch/software).  If it dies the same 
way, you could perhaps try to diagnose what is going wrong and send a 
patch if it's an rgl bug.  Given the age of your video driver 
(9/20/2000), you might be able to update it and fix a bug there.
