Hi Bruce,

I believe that the set edge step button is broken in Athena when the
Clnorm background is used.  To reproduce this error:
1 read in a xmu data set
2 set the background to clnorm and plot the normalized bkg.
3 push the set step height button and change the value.
4 replot the background and watch the set height value go back to the
original value.

If you need a project file let me know.

>     I plan to write a similar program for Windows users soon.  My plan
