In the few months that I worked on a Linux box, I've kept being 
disconcerted by the way xdvi worked: when displaying the same page 
including an EPS picture, sometimes the picture was shown, sometimes 
(ie most often) the corresponding page area remained blank. Happened 
with several documents, several pages, several pictures, and wasn't 
linked with LaTeX compilation errors. I never understood why, nor found 
any logical reproducible pattern to it. That said, this was in 1998, 
xdvi may have changed since.
