OK, after wading through the Doxygen docs, I found this, in
the Member Data Documentation for the vtkSource class:

   int vtkSource::LegacyHack  
      Legacy method. This method was used by inmaging filters to change
   the UpdateExtent of their input so that the vtkImmageToImageFilter
   superclass would allocate a larger volume. Changing the UpdateExtent
   of your input is no longer allowed.        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Since vtkImageClip is clearly an imaging filter, this applies to it.
Does this mean that it is not possible to clip an image interactively
(short of writing one's own Execute() method)?

Any help/pointers appreciated.
