I realize this reply is belated, but I don't see a reply
in my newsreader.

My COLORBAR routine has absolutely no problem with
irregular contour levels. Just use [XY]TICKV, etc.
But I do think it odd that you would use noncontiguous
color values. I've never done this. Add although I admit
to being terribly jet-lagged, I can't for the life of me
come up with a scenario where I would. If you wanted likely
colors in indices 10 to 100, wouldn't you do something like

   LOADCT, 33, NColors=90, Bottom=10
   Colorbar, XTickV=levels, NColors=90, Bottom=10
