Hey Peter,
Hard to tell what might be going on without knowing the transformations used 
when writing out the cloud...
I just did a quick test writing with both camera->world and camera->object and 
reading back into both an unparented object and one parented to the camera 
respectively, and it all seems to line up.

Why do you need the optransform() again? (remember that a camera->object 
transform at the pcwrite() call should give you this implicitly -- basically 
saying "put it where it came from"... unless I'm misinterpreting what you 
wrote).
