[Sidefx-houdini-list] One point with Delayed Load Procedural

My guess is that the delayed procedural uses the bounding box stored
in the header of the .bgeo file .bgeo file to determine whether the
geometry is rendered.

The size of the bounds for a single point are 0, so the geometry is
never rendered.

When mantra has the geometry loaded, it's able to enlarge the bounding
box by the "width" or "pscale" attribute values.  When the geometry is
on disk, there isn't a way to tell mantra what the maximum width is.

P.S.  Even with multiple points, it's possible you'd get clipping on extrema.
