I would think this is related to OGL/Viewport, @Mike Erwin (merwin), @Dalai Felinto (dfelinto)?

This worked until 2.76b and it doesn't work since 2.77a.

I looked at the code and even if I comment out all the ED_view3d_clipping_disable calls, the problem persists.

Looking further the problem probably was introduced on rB0372b642 when smoke drawing was converted to GLSL.

Assigning to Kévin, in case he has a way of solving this.
