Bug in vtkXMLPPolyDataWriter ?

Randall Hand
Like I mentioned earlier this week, I have a piece of code like such:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <vtkPLYReader.h>
#include <vtkXMLPPolyDataWriter.h >
#include <vtkCallbackCommand.h>
#include <vtkCommand.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <time.h>

static void ShowProgress( vtkObject *caller,
        unsigned long vtkNotUsed(eventId), void *, void *av)
    double amount;
    time_t theTime;
    char *strtime ;
    strtime = asctime(localtime(&theTime));
    strtime[strlen(strtime)-1] = '\0';
    amount = *((double*)av);
    printf("\t%s: %s at %.1f%% Completion\n", strtime,
            caller->GetClassName(), (amount)*100.0);

int main (int argc, char *argv[]) {
    printf("Reading \"%s\"...\n", argv[1]);
    vtkCallbackCommand *vtkProgress = vtkCallbackCommand::New();

    vtkPLYReader *reader = vtkPLYReader::New();
    reader->AddObserver(vtkCommand::ProgressEvent, vtkProgress);

    printf("Writing \"%s\"...\n", argv[2]);
    vtkXMLPPolyDataWriter *writer = vtkXMLPPolyDataWriter::New();
    writer->AddObserver(vtkCommand::ProgressEvent, vtkProgress);

    printf("Here we go...\n");

Basically, I connect vtkPLYReader to a vtkXMLPPolyDataWriter to split a file into 24 chunks for better parallelism in Paraview.  The PLY file easily loads, consuming ~4G of Ram (I've got 32G here, so no problems there).  But heres the process output:

Here we go...

So it seems to have written the first file, but died shortly into the second file.  city_0.vtp seems to contain the entire dataset.  See the following:
for the input PLY file:

Not sure why the header is scrambled on the city_1.vtp, I double checked.  This isn't a cut-n-paste error, the header was written to the file like that.  The last thing in the city_1.vtp is the AppendedData tag, followed by about 4 bytes of binary junk, even though it says it's base64 encoded.

So, any ideas what's going on?  I'm using the latest of the VTK-5-0 branch, on an SGI Irix, compiled in 64-bit mode.
