[vtkusers] Manually positioning a cylinder between two points - How to?

Hi David,

Work very fine to position the object. But, like I told, scales the
object. If the scale can be removed from transform, will be perfect!
When you did this approach, have you get in trouble with the scaling
too or this was not relevant to you?

Thanks in advance,

Wagner Sales
