FreqID tolerance

And another question from reader Korinne:

With data all observed looking for a particular spectral line over a few objects, should you use different frequency ids for the objects or can you use the same frequency id? I've been using a suggested value of a 2 MHz frequency tolerance in the manual which means they all end up with the same frequency id, but I do not know if it's right.

When you've got spectral lines in emission, what's the best way of actually reliably measuring them in AIPS? Half the time, when JMFIT is run on a line, the peak and integrated fluxes come out identical (which makes me suspicious!).
