But the point is that it *used* to work, and this is an important feature from
my perspective (and at least several of my colleagues). I don't want to have
to open kst to change a setting everytime I want to make a plot of a new file
from the command line. That kind of defeats the purpose of using the command
Do you have any ideas where this feature got broken in the datasource? I'm
busy today, but will look at it this weekend. Fixing this is a high priority
for me, since I'm in process of generating *thousands* of such files, and
it's really annoying to have to do "tail -<lines-1> file > temp" every time I
want to plot something.
