The grid calculation has changed somewhat which explains your first
The second problem sounds like a real bug which I must have
(the X-PLOR code for computing maps has completely changed and is now
much more memory efficient). I didn't notice the problem since the
and mappage conversion programs for O stop reading after the -9999.
I'll try to fix this as soon as possible. In the meantime, I would
suggest to edit the map file and remove the erroneous line.
