Subject:Topo view in spectool_gtk displays only half of 5 GHz band
Date:00:42:13 04/12/2009

> I'm using the a Wi-Spy DBx on 5 GHz with spectools-2009-06-R1, under Fedora 11. Running spectools_gtk, the Topo View seems to display only half of the band shown in the Spectral View and Planar View windows, i.e. the peaks that appear on the latter two windows appear twice as wide on the Topo View, and if they're on the upper (right hand) half, not at all.

I can't seem to recreate this - try the svn code and see if it's still happening? What are you seeing to make you think it's only drawing part of the graph - are the channel numbers cutting off early, etc?

I'll see what I can do to automate that in configure.
