Hi, all, 

   I haven't investigated this nearly so extensively as I probably should, but 
try the following: 

 {{1, 2, 3}, {1, 1, 1}, {0, 0, 0}},
 Filling -> Automatic]

    The 3D scatter plot is produced correctly, with no stems from the points 
to anywhere (as expected). However, the error message 
generated, "Filling::invfilling: Automatic must be Axis, Top, Bottom, 
Automatic, \
a numerical or a list of valid Filling entries.",  doesn't make sense to me, 
especially since "Automatic" *is* what is specified. The other possibilities 
for this option do seem to work for me. 

    I might just be totally missing the point of even having "Automatic" as an 
option in this function. I might also not have interpreted the error message 

   This is on
