Hi VMDers,

There may be a problem with the cube file viewing capacity of the new VMD
distribution. I was having trouble viewing some cube files containing
orbitals and densities, so I decided to try some old files and an old
script which had previously worked fine. The result was garbage (I've
attached a screenshot). Since the same script and cube files worked in my
last vmd distribution (1.8.4, I think), the problem must be with the change
in vmd version. Is there any other information about a possible problem?
I've double checked by running the cube through other visualization
utilities and they don't seem to have a problem.
