Summary0007396: Calculator filter: bad variable matching between scalars and vectors
DescriptionThe parser in the calculator filter has a bug where it seems to match scalar variable names even when there is a better match in the vectors. To replicate, do the following:

1. Open disk_out_ref. Load all variables.
2. Add the Gradient (Unstructured) filter. Make the output array named PressureGradients.
3. Add the Calculator filter. Make the expression simply be PressureGradients (pass through the PressureGradients data).

When you apply the calculator filter, you get a rather cryptic error: "Syntax error: operator expected; see position 4". After some head scratching, I realized that the parser is matching the first 4 characters, "Pres", to the scalar of that name instead of appropriately matching to the PressureGradients vector.
