Hi Ivan,

Your suggestion avoids Dev's immediate problem, but introduces two
more problems.  The best solution is for me to change the behavior of
Artemis so that it turns off the "freeze" flag when data are imported
from an Athena project file.

The problems are (1) this just freezes the rmax value to a different
number.  One still will want to change that value in Artemis.  (2)
Rmax is used to compute Nidp (number if independent points).  Set to
7, Nidp will be computed wrongly, as will all the statistical
