[Paraview] Saving Views

It could be a bug but... I am unable to reproduce it myself using pv 
3.8.1. If it's not a bug then it could be confusion of how this feature 
works. just to verify could you try the following:

1) start pv
2) make a cone source with the default values
3) change the view noticeably: rotate, shift, move out, etc, etc ...
4) from the camera dialog, save the camera config
5) close pv
6) start a new pv
7) make a cone source
8) from the camera dialog, load the camera config you saved in step 4

I have just done these steps on my workstation with PV 3.8.1 and the 
view was restored with no problem. If you still experience the problem 
using the above steps you should file a bug report on 
http://www.paraview.org/Bug with details about your platform and steps 
to reproduce the situation.
