You are indeed correct -- there is a mistake made in interpreting the
point clicked upon when using the deglitching tool. The problem has to
do with the deglitching tool not using the energy shift value correctly
when interpreting the point clicked upon.
I will shortly be checking a fix into github and this fix will appear in
the next version of the Windows installer.
The short-term work-around is to set the energy shift to 0, go do your
deglitching, then rest the energy shift to the original value. In your
case, change the energy shift from 2.767 to 0, then go to the
deglitching tool, then restore the value of 2.767 back on the main
window. Like all work-arounds, that's a bit of a pain in backside, but
it will allow to make progress.
Thanks for the bug report. As I often say here on the mailing list,
useful bug reports here on the mailing list help make the software
better for everyone!
