Yes, I have been testing with XnView.  It seems like nice software. 
XnView is able to properly read 15 of the 64 different DPX subformats 
that GraphicsMagick is currently able to read/write.  This is far more 
than any other freely obtainable software I have been able to find. 
I will be sure to send thanks to the author.

The good news is that it seems that the format issues I discovered 
have been surmounted so now I have restored the DPX samples package to 
the previously advertised location.  Retrieve it from:


Please make me aware of any defects that you may find.  Unfortunately 
it doesn't help to tell me that software X can't load a file.  I need 
to know why.
