sure, as it has to seek for the slice.

you may be out of bounds/extent.

if your object is named "reader", then :
         reader UpdateWholeExtent
will do the trick by reading the whole stuff in memory.
if you use vtkImageReslice to display a slice from a volume, you do not 
need that, but if you use two different vtkImageReslice (or objects) on the 
same reader, then use UpdateWholeExtent once.
