Okay, so it makes a difference to the camera position (as it apparently evaluates the 
scene bbox before the update callback is run).

It doesn't make a difference to the transformation of the node (which is where this thread 
is coming from AFAIR), since that is set in the update callback.

Also notice that the original RotateCB includes rotation *and* translation in the new 
matrix whereas your code only specified the rotation part, thereby losing any 
scaling/translation you set before.

If you change the translation (the one after setUpdateCallback) to some other value, the 
camera position will change, but the cow will still rotate around (-6,0,0).
