Strange, thought the reply-to address was set from osg-users...this was 
what I accidentally sent to Robert only:

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your reply, I realize you're busy with 3.4.1 right now. But 
if you can find the time to look into this I have also attached a simple 
example reproducing the issue in code. Commenting in adding of the geode 
will hide the light points.
