Wire Frame display

I have been having problems with the wire frame display. When-ever I move (right click, hold down shift) of (right click rotate) the wire frame display turns to a cube segmented view. No matter what I am modeling, it turns to a segmented cube until I release the rotation or move mouse command. On release the view returns to what has been modeled.
I have created a new view to give me the wire frame view I have been used to, but I would like to keep to what I am used to.
Can you help?

do you mean the objects are displayed with a bounding box? make sure bbox is not checked in the display panel.

Thank you very much for your help, the drawing was particularly helpful. The issue which has been driving me mad like an itch I could`t reach, is now sorted. Many thanks
