Bug Description

have just upgraded from 0.13.3 to 0.14.0... of course the satellite list is obsolete so they're all replaced with the defaults... but on the screen, there's a lot more satellite orbit lines than there should be... they move over time as per the segments settings but there's no satellite shown on them... the satellite orbits that are overhead do show satellites on them... when dragging the screen around, these other satellite lines move in the opposite direction from the drag... that seems to indicate that i'm seeing a ""mirror of the other side of the world"" or some such...

see the attached picture...

here's the log file...

The issue can be reproduced on perspective and partially on orthographic projections.

A tentative fix has been committed as revision 8384 of the trunk branch of Stellarium's Bazaar repository at Launchpad: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~stellarium/stellarium/trunk/revision/8384

I guess this solution may have some artifacts in some specific cases.
