Has anybody else run into a problem with the package dropping normals?

Here's what I'm doing:

1)  Create a Switch containing 3 Shape3Ds with different LODs
2)  Recalculate all the normals on the Shape3Ds to smooth over seams.
3)  Add the Switch to a BranchGroup
4)  Write out the BranchGroup using the SceneGraphFileWriter.
5)  Attach the BranchGroup to a live universe.

So that all seems to work, everything displays fine, including the smoothed normals.  

But then, I restart the program with a "load scenegraph" flag turned on:

1)  Read in the BranchGroup using a SceneGraphFileReader
2)  Attach the BranchGroup to a live universe.

The normals are messed up!  They are not even the original (non-smoothed) normals, but something else entirely!

The rest of the geometry, including texture coordinates, appearance, etc. is fine -- just the normals are clobbered.

Anybody else run into this problem?   Huh

Is anybody else actually using the Scenegraph IO utilities?   Huh

I'm using the ScenegraphIO packages, but I have only used it for prelit textured geometry so I have not run into any problem with normals (a good extension to GeometryInfo would be a method that lets you change vertex format to get rid of unused info, like normals).

The known issues list for Java3D 1.3.1beta lists bug 4717595 ( ) as a problem with ScenegraphIO, but it does not seem to have the symptoms that you describe.
