Recent cleanups of all the vtk classes have removed #include "stuff.h" from
many headers and you obviously haven't got a
#include "vtkImageData.h"
statement at the top of your file. Hence the compiler doesn't know it's a
subclass of vtkDataSet. All the headers just state
class vtkImageData;
now so you need to add it. It's a pain, but it make the build process
cleaner and faster (and it;s the right thing to do really)
