[rescue] Weird Silicon Graphics o2 graphics issues

okay this is rather weird, and its a problem I have had with my o2 since 
I have had it. Originally I thought it was due to the machine not having 
enough memory (64 Meg.) Well last week I got a further 128 meg for this 
machine and the problem was still there.

I have also reinstalled IRIX (as I had also installed an A/V board) 
updated to 6.5.21m, and the issue is still there.

Okay the problem is kinda hard to describe, but occurs with image view 
when resizing images and with adobe premier with video, and also with 
the demo distort.

what seems to happen is the "whole" image isn't displayed but the first 
section of the image, then it repeats, with the dog image its pretty 
much half, but it can be a third.  With image view, to get it to display 
this behavior I have to resize the image.

the best explanation would be this screen capture here:

this effect is produced when say for example with movie maker, if you 
wrap the video onto a sphere the same effect is produced in the saved video.

What I have tried to resolve this issue, well for one I removed the 
original 64 Meg that was installed on the machine (4X32) but that made 
no improvement.
