Consider the following CLI script...

print TimeSliderGetNStates()
md = GetMetaData("/Users/miller86/visit/trunk/data/silo_hdf5_test_data/wave.visit",5)
print TimeSliderGetNStates()
md = GetMetaData("/Users/miller86/visit/trunk/data/silo_hdf5_test_data/wave.visit",6)
print TimeSliderGetNStates()

It prints the values...


It doesn't matter what the two time args to the two GetMetaData() calls are. A call to GetMetaData() after OpenDatabase() will cause the active time slider to change, somehow. Note, that it's name does not change. Its just that after the GetMetaDAta(), VisIt thinks there is only one time state in the active time slider. Only work-around is to reopen the database after a call to GetMetaData().
