# [pstricks] No dashed line with pst-vue3d?

Hello all,

I am trying to use pst-vue3d to create a section of a sphere with dashed lines (below is a simplified version of my code).  Everything works great unless I uncomment line 13, specifying the dashed line for \PortionSphereThreeD (see attachments).  If I use \psset{linestyle=dashed}, this happens the first time a command specific to pst-vue3d is encountered, such as pNodeThreeD, even though no lines are stroked.

This is the only package for which I have seen this problem.  I am using TeXLive 2012 on Linux, but it works on my work computer running an older MikTeX installation (2008) with Windows 7.  The only difference between the two installations are the pstricks.sty (v0.40 / v0.52) and pstricks.tex (v1.29 / v2.30) files, i.e., the pst-vue3d package is v1.24 in both instances.  However, when I did a local installation of the latest pstrick package on my work computer, it produced the same results as my Linux installation.  And I did run texhash on the TeXLive installation and refreshed the filename database on MikTeX (as evidenced by the version numbers on the log file - unfortunately I do not have any of the MikTeX log files).

Am I missing something that explains this error? I have only started using pstricks, so it may be something very obvious...

Thanks,
Eric Van Horn
