On my Windows 7, 64 bit machine, with 16 GB ram, the program starts with
"Compiling Design (CSG Tree generation)", then "Compiling Design(CSG
Products Generation)".  After about 40 seconds I get a Microsoft Visual C++
Runtime Library message "The application has requested the Runtime to
terminate in an unusual way.  Please contact the application support team
for more information.

If I remove the linear_extrude() line and start OpenSCAD by selecting
mayan_haab_15_inch. scad file the initial rendering appears in about 3 sec,
but it is still extruded.  If I hit F5 the Preview appears (still extruded)
in about 3 sec, but F6 still causes the error message. 

I am rather inexperienced with OpenSCAD so could someone explain why when I
remove the linear_extrude() line the initial rendering and the F5 rendering
still appears as an extruded image?  If I change the scale_factor the image
changes size, but the image still appears as extruded.  Is the image cached
