paraview.simple.Box() fails to draw box at right location with MPI
paraview.simple.Box(), when run in parallel, fails to draw boxes at the correct coordinates as specified by boxLength and boxCenter. In serial mode, however, the box is drawn at the correct location. At the moment, a ad-hoc fix is to draw the box by using 'paraview.simple.Line()' multiple times. This seems to work both in parallel and serial.
For debugging purposes, I attach a script (example.py) that reproduces the problem.
I am running ParaView-5.4.1 on Debian 9. I am using mpiexec and pvbatch that come together with ParaView. My shell command for running the script is: /opt/ParaView-5.4.1/bin/mpiexec -np 4 pvbatch example.py
In 'example.py' I basically create two boxes with same center but one has twice the length of the other. If you run this code with 1 processor you should see that the output (example.png) displays two concentric boxes. Increasing the processor count (anything >1) seems to cause the center of one of the boxes to be misplaced.
Kind Regards, Tiago
