This came up as result of user issue where a CLI script defining a number of expressions has required more and more use of recenter operator as new releases of VisIt have come out.

I think VisIt tries to be smart when dealing with mixed centering variables in an expression. That said, are we being sane?

Might it make sense to do all expressions in nodal? I know that numerically the results would differ a bit for an all-zonal expression but this would simplify things for users quite a bit.

Mark will talk to Jay to find out what specific expression has changed with respect to automatic centering.
