You are correct that you cannot subset across the projection boundary.  This 
will require a change to the underlying netCDF library.  It has to convert a 
lat/lon box into index space and that would require some work to get the 
indices right.  It's on the list of things to do, but is not an easy task.

If you are not displaying in the native projection, you'll need to turn off 
Fast Rendering so the projection seams can be accounted for.  If you display in 
the data projection, things should display correctly.
