[Ifeffit] chi(k) Athena bug?

1) This is not a FEFF related bug. I just had the CORRECTION CARD in the
2) This tiny "problem" is not related to chi.dat file. If I save a .chi file
(from raw, mue,... data), then remove the first k values and then try to
read it in again in Athena, the same bug is occurring.
For example, I opened one raw spectrum given as example with the package
(e.g. under Ifeffit\examples\Athena\Fe\Fe.060), saved it as chi spectrum
(without doing any changes), removed the first chi(k) data, then opened the
.chi file back in Athena: I did experience the same "problem".

This sounds like it might be due to bugs in both Feff and
Ifeffit/Athena. That is,
a) Feff's chi.dat should start at k=0, not at k=1.4Ang^-1. Any ideas
why this might have happened?? If you'd like us to understand this
issue better, post the feff.inp file.
b) Ifeffit/Athena is able to read chi(k) data that starts at k>0, in
general. But I can believe that it might recognize a chi.dat file
from Feff, and read it in expecting it to start at k=0. That could
cause the trouble you're seeing, though I would not expect athena to
freeze because of such a problem.
