The functionality provided by ListSurfacePlot3D in V5 has being
incorporated in ListPlot3D and even ListContourPlot and

You can plot a list of irregular 3-D points with ListPlot3D, and it is
orders of magnitud faster than the previous one.

In V6.0, ListSurfacePlot3D will try to approximate a surface on a
cloud of points in 3D. If you scale one of the coordinates too much,
as in your example multipliying by 19, the algorithm can not identify
that the points are close to each other any more and it will not
recognize it as a surface. Your data is too sparse. ListSurfacePlot3D
is intended for scanned like data, where the distance between adjacent
points is close enough, and it will try to identify holes on the
