freaky raytrace!!

I'm really scratching my head on this one.  I'm working on a bedroom (see camera view below).  When I do a quick raytrace to check the lighting, I get a weird mishmash of letters or something!!  I narrowed the problem down to the bed -- when I hide the bed, the room raytraces normally.

 

Now the bed symbol is admittedly very large and complex (downloaded from somewhere, 68,000 faces).  BUT I'VE USED THIS BED BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEM!!  To make sure, I just re-ran a raytrace of an old project using this bed, and all is well.  So what the heck is happening here????  Any clue?

It's a combination of bad/complex materials/models.  I had this happen recently.  I did a file "Save As...", then closed and reopened the new file.  Stripped the room down to defaults, the added and re-ran ray trace with each material or new object added.  In my case it was a faucet that I'd used dozens of times, but X6 did not like it--nu uhn, nowaywhatsoever.

Turns out that the bed symbol itself had gotten corrupted somehow.  When I copied the symbol into the new plan from the previous plan, everything was fine.  So all's well that ends well, I guess.
