Greetings Frank, I wonder if this issue has been resolved in the current release of the IDV (we are at 3.0u1 - https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/downloads/idv/index.jsp). Would you mind updating to the latest release to see if the problem still exists? If so, please send us a bundle so that we can see exactly how you have things setup and to give us a better idea of where to diagnose the issue in the code. To send the bundle, simply load the data into the IDV and get the contours to behave incorrectly, then, from the dashboard, click "Help" -> "Support Request Form" - please make sure "Include Current State as Bundle" is checked in the lower left corner of the support request form. Are the data you are using located on a publicly accessible server (like motherlode?) - if not, it would be helpful to have a copy of the dataset so that the bundle will work (a small subset, spatial and temporal, will work - no need to have the whole thing).
