Data disappears when the central meridian or datum is changed


Occurs when unprojecting or doing a geographic (datum) transformation. Data greater than 180 degrees disappears, for example; if the central meridian is 100 degrees, the data is between -180 and -80 degrees.


The geometries are not being correctly shifted back to the display area.
