CVEL bug

I received an email yesterday informing people of a bug in CVEL - that is, if you run CVEL on a data set after SPLIT with an NX table, you are affected! I wanted to post it here in case you're not on the Midnight Job (MNJ) list (which I wasn't). Essentially, CVEL will only shift the first scan to the new velocity axis, while the other scans are not shifted. This bug is explained here. I think the possible fixes are to either run CVEL before SPLIT or to run the midnight job to update your AIPS version and then rerun the new CVEL version on your data.
