Hi Thomas,
	Thanks for pointing this out.  The implementation is kind of in the  
"shake-down cruise" stage and could have some problems initially.   
This was one of them.  Fixed now (in next daily build).  I increased  
the ellipse thickness from 0.001 angstroms to 0.01, so the visibility  
is better.  The size factor affects the other two dimensions, not the  
	Let me know of any other problems you run into, or improvements you'd  
like to see.
