bug in contourplot options, Maple 7 and Maple 8 (27.5.02)

Dale Alspach

It appears that there is some bug in contourplot (Maple 7 linux). The combination of variable range for y, filled=true and explicit contours produces a large red triangle (side 10^14) for (x^2+y^2)^(1/4). Changing the exponent from 1/4 to 1/2 or 1/3 yields the expected plot. 1/5 and 1/6 also produce triangles.

This plots nonsense:


These plot something reasonable:

The bug seems to be fixed in Maple 8.

I get the same bug in Maple 8 (U. Klein)
