Warning regarding ListContourPlot3D

In Mathematica 7.0.1 on Linux x86-64, the example for ListContourPlot3D,

 Table[x^2 + y^2 - z^2 + RandomReal[0.1], {x, -2, 2, 0.2}, {y, -2, 2, 0.2},
{z, -2, 2, 0.2}], Contours -> {0}, Mesh -> None]

plots two cones with their axes in the x-direction (instead of the
z-direction as would have been expected from the formula).  Using
AxesLabel->{"x","y","z"} verifies this.  I don't really care (I don't use
ListContourPlot3D much) but just thought I would put this out there, for
reference by users of 7.0.1.  I haven't checked if ListContourPlot3D behaves
differently in Mathematica 8.   -YLL
