As suggested by Herbert, I updated my copy of the 3dplot files, and as expected, the problem went away.  However an problem arose with pstParaboloid.  Basically the paraboloid is not rendered.  When I do my standard latex->dvips->pspdf, I get a compiler error in the final step.  See minimal example below.  The first "image" is cut from my document.  When the line containing pstParaboloid is active, the compilation fails.  The second "image" comes from the latest pst-3dplot documentation.

what is the reason for \pstThreeDPut instead of using the argument
for \psParabolid[...](1.5,0,0){.5}{.1} ??
