ESRI 10: MoleMarkerSymbol placed twice on the map

Discussion created by vlr on Aug 20, 2010

since ESRI 10 MarkerElements of MoleMarkerSymbols are placed twice on the map: 1st as a map element at the desired position and size; 2nd allways at position 1.8deg lon, 1.8 del lat, much smaller (see red encircled area at the attachement). The artefact is the same symbol, but cannot be selected.

The MarkerElement has been added to a GraphicsContainer (".addElement(...)") as demonstrated in the example "Mole Basic Symbols" from the ESRI Java samples collection.

ESRI 9.3 does not show this behaviour.

How could I solve this issue?

Many thanks in advance,
