commit 31232529b044bb529a6160fbb139c45c18969378

    BUG 0014187. Fix default to not cache animations.
    ParaView by default caches animation geometry. With cached geomtry the
    data-ranges cannot be shown correctly. Since geometry-caching happens under the
    covers it difficult for users to understand what's going on with data-ranges.
    Hence, we change the default to not cache. Thus when users do turn on
    geometry-caching, they can be made away that that will affect data ranges.

The problem arises due to geometry caching which is ON by default. I've pushed a change to disable caching by default and add a note to the settings dialog to warn users about the potentially incorrectly data-ranges when changing timesteps.
