Yeah.. i am aware of that.
It looks like i should spend some time and fix my precious demo to
check bounds before blindly copying bits from opengl buffer to
I described the problem in previous discussion, and i know what
exactly should be done... but i haven't time to address that.. i have
more important things to do.

Just want to repeat again: That demo was just for the DEMO purposes..
it was not designed for general purpose..
It would be nice if someone could spend time improving it and getting
rid of obvious mistakes, like missed range checking.

But till then, take it with grain and salt.
