No cheby for phase

0 votes
While folding a baseband observation with dspsr, I sometimes obtain the following error:

dsp::UnloaderShare::unload error unloading division 0
        dsp::Archiver::add Pulsar::Archive
        dsp::Archiver::set Pulsar::Archive
        dsp::Archiver::set Pulsar::Integration
        no cheby for phase

Is there any chance that someone knows what it means?

To bypass the issue, I usually start the processing after N seconds from the beginning (option "-S" of dspsr). 1 is usually sufficient for me

However, this quick and dirty solution doesn't tell us anything about what's wrong with the beginning of the observation

I have a hunch that this error may be due to rounding errors in the code that decides if a given absolute pulse phase (including integer turns) falls within the range of phases spanned by an individual set of Chebyshev polynomial coefficients.  I've checked in what I think should be a fix.   If you are able to reproduce the error, could you please check if it now works on your end?
