On the subject of netCDF. I'm not sure if this is a paraview or a vtk 
problem (I think paraview, becuase my vtk test code doesn't do it).

After loading a file I can get a nice image like this

but after interacting, the image goes like this.

by clicking on the reset to view, or reset colour table buttons one can 
usually get itback to a nice image, but I'm not sure what's going on. Is 
this a known bug or something to do with my setup.
