[osg-users] osgText: problem with SCREEN_COORDS mode

Thanks for looking into this. Your update works well.

I have one additional request: the computing of the origin, left, and up
vectors (lines 517-519) need to be done in double-precision. In my
graticule example, the text jitters as you manipulate the scene; changing
those lines to use osg::Vec3d resolves the issue. I have submitted a PR.
