I've got a glyph object with a number of spheres which intersect with a
polydata surface. I'd like to get the surface resulting from that
intersection (the whole kind of circle -not the contour of the kind of
circle). When trying with a sphere as ClipObject it works fine, but when
I try to use the glyph as ClipObject (before I use vtkImplicitDataSet,
shouldn't I do this?) it results in running errors.

Thanks in advance,
