Hi Ian,

First a disclaimer:  though I'm the original author of dm, I haven't officially
supported it for quite some time :-)
John Faucett just reported the same problem.  I haven't actually used the gif
feature for quite awhile.  I think Andrew is likely right about the format
issue.  The gif code was initially "borrowed" from medm and modified for use 
with dm. I'm guessing the newer version of gif support could be "borrowed" from
medm and used to upgrade the code.  I can't promise to get to it any time soon
unfortunately, but will let you know if I do.

Sorry :-(
