[Ifeffit] Help: Artemis closes without error message when open .cif file

It would be helpful to me to see an example of a CIF file that
triggers this problem.  If you are running on Windows, then I would
also like to see the contents of the %APPDATA%\demeter\dartemis.log
file.  See 


If you are a linux user, I would need to see the messages sent to the
terminal, which requires running the program from the terminal rather
from some launcher widget.

As I have said many times before on this mailing list, CIF support is
rather weak at this time.  I am using a CIF parsing tool written by
someone else and it has its problems.  That said, as people report
these problems, I am able to build more smarts into Demeter so that it
at least deals gracefully with a CIF file it doesn't understand.
