Jim - as far as I can remember, this is a known bug caused by imported EPS 
graphics that's been present since at least V 5. I don't seem to have a note of 
the specific cause, or a workaround, other than turning off graphics display 
when you don't need it.

If this is indeed the same bug, Rick Quattro has a plug-in that fixes it. 
Here's his comments from last time round, to save him having to type them in 
again ;-)
