Hello Alain,
Mathematica version 5.1 shows the same behaviour.
It seems that ListPlotVectorField3D tries to be smart and croppes
peripheral vectors where the vector-density is small.
Interestingly, either setting VectorHeads -> False, or better,
PlotRange->All cures the problem.
If anybody has enough time, he could look at the code in
"ListPlotVectorField3D" and let the group know.
Here, instead of AI I would speak of AS (artificial stupidity)
Sincerely, Daniel
