My expertise here is limited but snmpwalk and nmdemandpoll do not operate
the same way.  snmpwalk uses getnext to traverse the ifTable while
nmdemandpoll uses a get for the exact ifIndex, or so I am told.
For example,     the last  .1 here is the ifIndex, everything
before that is the ifTable.
./nl_snmper.c[1355] : recv_snmp: from xnet-fw1 ( op = FORCED
req = SNMPStatus reqid = 1591341
./nl_snmpstate.c[2565] : Interface 1): No Admin/Oper
Status in ifTable

If the device responds in differently between a direct snmpget and an
snmpwalk, I think it is  Cisco issue not a NetView one.  Can you verify
this from the command line?
