           Summary: Preview problems with EML DataSource (for IPCC data)
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: actors
        AssignedTo: berkley at nceas.ucsb.edu
        ReportedBy: higgins at nceas.ucsb.edu
         QAContact: kepler-dev at ecoinformatics.org

As of RC1, there is a 'Preview' menu item on the popup menu for EML DataSource
actors. If one tries to preview the data for results of an 'IPCC' search,
several problem appear.

For small data sets (like predictions for future climate variables where data
may have 96 columns and 48 rows), initial header lines are apparently truncated
in the preview display. Since a primary reason for the preview is to help
understand the data, the header lines should not be removed in the display

With larger IPCC datasets (e.g. historical data with 720 x 360 data arrays),
clicking on the preview menu seems to hang Kepler (at least for several
minutes) I had to kill Kepler to continue.
