The oval (and Draw's circle command) is bugged, I think. Compare...
view layout [box red effect [draw [pen blue fill-pen green circle
view layout [box red effect [draw [pen blue fill-pen blue circle 10x10
In the second example where draw's pen and fill-pen are the same
colour you get just a blue box instead of a blue circle with no
obvious edge colour.
However, draw's circle is still usable if you're happy to give your
circle an edge with a different colour, so it could be a substitute
for your misbehaving oval. The docs for the draw dialect are
available via the View Desktop in the rebol.com Docs folder. See
