I got a patch from Kalman Reti (Apple) to get MCL to start up on the
Rocket.  It seems to work but I haven't done any major work to really
stress it yet.

I checked with Radius.  They are aware of the problems associated with
the Radius Rocket family.  They are not going to update the RocketWare
to fix these problems.  They are trying to get me to get RocketShare
which would be useless for me on the IIcx.  Kalman indicated that
RocketShare is also having problems with MCL.

It is a shame that Radius's support is failing on the Rocket.  I have
used their graphic accelerators and was really impressed by its support
until now.
