        It seems that aborting a reading (by hitting the space bar), leaves
the instrument hardware out of sync with the driver. As a result, the
next read has faulty measurement values. A workaround is to do a "Check All" 
proceeding on to the calibration. I'll add a fix for this in the next release.
