This problem is addressed in ArcGIS 8.1 Service Pack 1. See the Related Information section to download this pack.When reprojecting world data, Antarctica disappears or a fatal error occurs.
This is data-specific. In this case, the "bottom edge" of Antarctica is a two-point arc connecting -180,-90 and 180,-90. The clipping that occurs when reprojecting does not occur correctly.
