Multicomponent point data for paraview is written as 'vector' data with the desired number of components. In case numberOfComponents!=3 loading such data in paraview results in permanent warnings. According to the following paraview bug-report this can be avoided by using the 'scalar' type with the desired number of components instead:
If 'vectors' is replaced by 'scalars' in the .vtu file paraview does indeed not complain any more. As this report is not commented and I could not find appropriate documentation it's unclear if this is a paraview bug or if we misuse the 'vector' type.
