Hi Prabhu,
I'll switch to the mayavi mailing list, ok?

Yes, I've seen the warning message and rebuilt tvtk. After that, I got the error
about the missing BoxWidget.

Well, I can't reproduce this now as I already upgraded to vtk 4.4.2 but when
starting the ivtk example there was a message saying, if I remember right, that
there is a version mismatch between some image lib (libpng?) of the system and
that with which VTK was compiled...? Something like that.

No problem, I'm just curious about the results.
