I'm using a tweaked version of vtkVRMLImport with quite a bit of
success.  As well as Visual C++'s broken for-loop scoping, there
were a number of places where I had to fix up memory allocations
so the parser could be reused safely (I have an application where
the user can load any number of VRML files to view different
parts of the environment being visualized.)  To do this I added
a ResetParser method that is appended below, and also added
a method to the VrmlNodeType class that deals with clearing it.  This
is also shown below.  Apart from these things, the parser has worked
really well, and I do not recall seeing the problem Thomas mentioned,
either under VC++5.0 or VC++6.0.
