I haven't totally tested this out, but *apparently* when setting the points
of a polygon via script in Rev 3, if you do not place a closing point loc at
the end of the point list that is identical to the starting point loc, Rev
will assign some random wacky point loc of its own choosing and potentially
cause a polygon object to render wildly out of control. This is what I ran
into with tm|gauge: polygon digits being rendered offscreen because Rev was
adding crazy point locations to my point sets.
Again, I haven't spent the time to fully track this down, just did enough
exploration to put a fix in place that forced the ending point loc to match
the starting point loc. HTH.
