non-uniform grids pressure vs. time

Using the example as a template I tried to write code to
contour an irregular grid in time/pressure.

The vertical coordinate is the CCM3 model grid in pressure space. Since
the model is in normalized sigma coordinates, the boundaries of the
vertical pressure cells vary with surface pressure which changes at
each time. The times are uniformly spaced.

from the code it would appear that all I need to do is to
define is:

to be able to produce some kind of plot. The sfXCellBounds are the
corners of the time cells, sfYCellBounds are the corners of the
pressure cells.

This all seems very straightforward but when a run contour I get a
great may errors of the form:

unmatched node 1 3 59.986111 988.241821
unmatched node 2 0 59.986111 988.241821
unmatched node 2 3 59.986111 1805.201050
unmatched node 3 0 59.986111 1805.201050

What does this mean? It would seem that I am not defining the cell
boundaries correctly - But there does not seem to be much room for

Is there any other documentation on how the cells need to be speciifed?
I have looked over the MeshScalarField resources but have not found
anything obvious that I am doing wrong.

Presently, I am at a loss of what to try next.

I recall that Dennis Shea posted some code to do this in NCL - but I
have lost it. I think it used GSUN.

Thanks for any help.
