be a difference between POP5/POP6 spatials, but just a consequence of the
transition from v1.0 to v1.1 hardware. Of course if you have done a POP6 run
on the machine you have running v1.1--then it is a POP5/POP6 spatial issue.

If you run 2 384's, make sure to go into preferences and change maximum
number of runs in a batch to 8 (or higher). Mine was at 5 and my machine did
5 out of the 8 runs and then just sat there for a few hours until I arrived
this morning. I just hit "run" again and it continued, but I lost a couple of
