Sean, can you confirm that applying the reversed (patch -R) patch you
get a clean dashboard ?

GDCM is a pretty good choice indeed ;-P
As a side note, it took me quite a while to get GDCM to compile on the
mulitple compilers supported by ITK. I think it will be an even
greater challenge to get it supported by all compilers VTK supports...
Not mentionning the jpeg8/12/16/j2k library addition
