ListContourPlot3D bug?

Hi,

I think I've found a bug in the ListContourPlot3D function (Mathematica 7.01):
the following command should give a cylinder along the z-axis:

ListContourPlot3D[
 Table[x^2 + y^2, {x, -1, 1, 0.1}, {y, -1, 1, 0.1}, {z, -1, 1, 0.1}],
 Contours -> {0.1}, Mesh -> None, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}]

However, the cylinder is aligned along the x-axis, which is not
correct.

The command

ContourPlot3D[x^2 + y^2, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, -1, 1},
 Contours -> {0.1}, Mesh -> None, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}]

gives the correct output.
Of course, for a single plot like above, the solution would be just to
exchange the axes label. But this becomes awkward when you, for
example, want to combine multiple plots (via Show).
