I think Adam's suggestion is a good one:   it would benefit everybody if 
you explain the problem in a git issue. even if it's a "pilot" error, 
this will benefit those looking at closed issues and how they got 
resolved. I've used pyspeckit a bit, but not the lines you are using. So 
this is new to me as well.
